Springville, UT (June 01, 2021) – A pedestrian was struck and killed by a moving train on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 1st in Springville.
The deadly accident took place on Evergreen Drive.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing what looked like an adult male attempting to cross the tracks before the train came through the area and didn’t make it.
Investigators were still on the scene as of 6:00 p.m.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
The United States is home to approximately 600 train systems that run across hundreds of thousands of miles of railroad tracks and cross more than 209,000 railroad crossings. Each year, an average of 1,000 pedestrians are killed during train-related accidents, and about half of those fatal accidents take place at train crossings that are totally unmarked.
