Dashcam Footage of Train Crashing Into FedEx Truck

North Salt Lake, UT - North Salt Lake police have released dashboard camera video showing the moment a Utah Transit Authority FrontRunner train crashed into a FedEx truck Saturday morning.

According to UTA, a preliminary investigation shows the crossing gates were up and the flashing lights and bells that normally indicate atrain is approaching were not active.

"In the event of a power outage or lack of signal, crossing gates are programmed to default to the “down and active” position as a safety precaution. Preliminary information indicates the gates were affected by the severe ice and snow conditions at the time and were in the default “down and active” position, as they are programmed. After an employee responded to the location, the gates moved to the up position. UTA is investigating why and how it happened to ensure it doesn’t occur again.
