LAYTON, Utah, Oct. 21, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified a 38-year-old woman from Idaho who died in an auto-pedestrian crash in Layton Saturday evening.

Layton Police Lt. Brady Fitzpatrick told Gephardt Daily the incident occurred in the area of 650 N. Main St. at approximately 9:50 p.m.

Officials received a report of a woman who had been struck by a vehicle while crossing not in a crosswalk.

A follow-up news release from Layton PD said Jordan Schneider, from Star, was struck by a vehicle traveling southbound on Main Street.

“Police and paramedics attempted life-saving measures, but Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene,” said the news release. “Jordan was in Layton for a business trip along with four other co-workers who were witnesses to the accident.”

The driver of the vehicle, a male juvenile, remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation. Fitzpatrick said it appears the driver simply did not see Schneider because it was dark at the time. It does not appear there are contributing factors such as speed. There are no charges against the driver at this stage.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
