(Salt Lake City-AP) -- None of the 15 passengers were hurt yesterday when a woman stepped out in front of a TRAX train, but the operator is shaken up.

It happened just after 4:00 p-m yesterday.

Salt Lake County investigators say the woman stepped out from behind a switch box at about 4115 South and 215 West and into the path of the train.

Utah Transit Authority officials say the northbound train was going about 35 miles per hour when the woman was hit. Both northbound and southbound trains in the area were closed while an investigation was conducted.
