SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Four people suffered minor injuries when a commuter train hit a maintenance truck in North Salt Lake Friday.

Two Union Pacific workers had finished spraying weeds along the train tracks and were pulling away about 1 p.m. when the FrontRunner train hit their truck.

The Standard-Examiner (http://bit.ly/Vry0Hb) reports the collision derailed the train and sparked a small fire. One person was hospitalized as a precaution. Crews doused the blaze and a bus took the passengers to their next stop.

The workers weren’t injured.

The Utah Transit Authority said the train will be delayed until 8 p.m.
