WOODS CROSS -- A woman received minor injuries Sunday when her car collided with two trains about 8:20 a.m. at 1050 West and 2600 South.

Woods Cross officers were responding to a call of an unwanted guest at a residence at about 2300 S. Redwood Road, when they saw a car matching the description of the one given by the complainant, according to Woods Cross Police Detective Adam Osoro.

The officers tried to stop the car on Redwood Road, but the driver refused to stop. Instead, she headed east on 2600 South. There, she ran into a moving train that was blocking 2600 South.

As officers attempted to get the 29-year-old woman out of her vehicle, a second train struck it, Osoro said.

Medical personnel were called to the scene, where they extricated her. She was taken to the University of Utah Hospital. Initially, it was believed she suffered a broken arm, "but when we interviewed her at the hospital, it appeared she didn't even have a broken arm,"Osoro said. "She was lucky, very lucky."

She now faces possible evasion charges. Officers also drew blood to determine if alcohol may have played a role in the crash, Osoro said.
