Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

How many people have died as a direct result of a TRAX accident? Is there any place I can find details about all TRAX related accidents (fatal or otherwise)?

A: Dear UTA Fan,

In a search of the archives of Salt Lake newspapers, I have found articles about, or mention of, eight total deaths from Trax accidents since Trax began operation in late 1999. Most of these involved pedestrians (such as a pedestrian walking in front of a Trax train). If you would like specific data and numbers directly fron UTA, you can call them at (801)262-5626 extention 2159.
