MILLCREEK, Utah, Sept. 14, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officers with the Unified Police Department and assisting agencies are at the scene of a fatal auto-pedestrian accident Saturday night.
Police and emergency medical responders were dispatched to the area of 3900 South and 1000 East at about 9:25 p.m.
Lt. Wayne Dial, UPD division commander, told Gephardt Daily that a 68-year-old man was struck by a westbound vehicle and died at the scene.
“The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk,” Dial said. “He was probably 80 to 100 yards east of 900 East. It’s a dark area, and the pedestrian was struck in the roadway.”
Dial said the vehicle appears to be a Honda Pilot, and it sustained “significant damage.”
The incident is still under investigation, but Dial said there is no immediate indication that impairment was a factor.
He said officials from various agencies could be on scene for a few hours, and westbound traffic has been shut down from 1100 East to 900 East.
