LEHI — A 35-year-old man is dead after he was hit by a FrontRunner train Thursday evening at 298 N. 500 West in Lehi, according to the Utah Transit Authority.

UTA spokesman Carl Arky said the man was declared dead at the scene.

Commuters who utilize the train from American Fork to Lehi were shuttled using a bus bridge between stations. The train couldn't be moved from the scene of the collision while officials conducted their investigation.

At 8:30 p.m., UTA announced in a tweet that trains were able to proceed in both directions in the area but delays may continue.
