FrontRunner hits, kills motorcyclist who struck railroad arm

OGDEN '€” A motorcyclist was hit and killed by a FrontRunner train Tuesday evening, moments after crashing into a lowered railroad arm, police said. He was hit by a FrontRunner train a short time later and died at the scene. A 72-year-old man was driving his motorcycle on 2nd Street near 500 West in Ogden when he struck a crossing gate and crashed onto the nearby tracks, Ogden police reported. Utah Transit Authority officials also responded to the scene of the crash. It wasn't immediately clear whether any FrontRunner passengers sustained injuries.

Ogden police identify victim of motorcycle-FrontRunner crash

Police say a 72-year-old motorcyclist may have attempted to avoid collision with a FrontRunner train just before he was fatally hit at an Ogden rail crossing. "The motorcycle continued on [across the tracks] separate from [Carver], but the train hit him," Scott said, though he noted the incident remained under investigation. Tim Scott said witnesses have told investigators that Larry Carver, of Plain City, appeared to have "laid down" his motorcycle just before the crash near 2nd Street and 500 West about 7 p.m.
