Fatal Auto Collision
600 West North Temple

A small dark colored Hyundai was westbound on North Temple at an apparent high rate of speed. The vehicle ran through the barrier arms and collided with the TRAX train going eastbound, knocking the train off the tracks. The driver, Jose Cabral 51, of Ogden, was deceased at the scene. He had been involved in a hit and run moments before the collision with the train and appeared to be fleeing that scene.
