SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) - Authorities in Utah say four people were hurt Sunday when a Salt Lake City-area passenger train derailed.

A spokesman for South Salt Lake police said at least two people aboard the light rail train were in serious condition after the derailment.

Spokesman Gary Keller said in a news release all four were taken to local hospitals. A total of 14 people were riding when the train derailed.

Utah Transit Authority PIO Remi Barron told the Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/1T6k2qU ) it happened in a curve in the tracks about 2:30 p.m. It was unclear how long it would take to clear the tracks. Buses were being used in the area in the meantime.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
