KANAB, Utah, April 18, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified an 80-year-old woman killed in an auto-pedestrian accident Wednesday in Kanab.
The deceased is Phyllis L. Pyle, from Auburn, Washington.
A news release from UHP said the accident happened about 6:54 p.m. when a husband and wife were attempting to cross State Route 89A.
“A Ford truck was traveling west on SR-89 turning south onto SR-89A. The driver of the truck failed to see the pedestrians in the cross walk due to the sun being in his eyes.
“The male pedestrian was able to jump out of the truck’s path, however the truck struck the female pedestrian,” the DPS report said.
CPR was initiated on scene, but the woman later died at a Kanab area hospital, the news release said.
