SUNSET, Utah — One person is dead following a train vs. trespasser incident on Utah Transit Authority tracks in Davis County.

UTA officials said the incident occurred around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, and a bus bridge has been activated between the Clearfield and Roy stations.

The biggest delays were northbound from Roy and southbound from Layton to Woods Cross. Police were also blocking a rail crossing near 2300 North and 475 West in Sunset.

Authorities later confirmed the trespasser was in a restricted area and died by suicide. Crews resumed train service in the area just after 10 a.m.
