(KSL News) -- This afternoon a TRAX train and a car collided.
Janice Wimmer, Witness: "He hit the driver's side. I thought he hit him real hard."
UTA says the train had a "proceed to go" signal, that the car ran a red turn light and pulled in front of the train.
Two people in the car were hurt.
Coincidentally, UTA had scheduled to launch a new campaign tomorrow, promoting the dangers of left hand turns and and other things around trains.
Justin Jones, Spokesperson, UTA: "We've been reminding people throughout the week and especially tomorrow we're going to emphasize the fact that people should be safe, and launching a campaign to remind them to be safe and especially driving around TRAX."
UTA is calling the campaign "Train for Safety."
