LAYTON, UT – A person’s life was claimed in a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash on the southbound lanes of Antelope Drive Wednesday.
The collision occurred after 7 p.m., Gephardt Daily reported.
The driver was said to have gone 25 mph, and the pedestrian was wearing dark, non-reflective clothing and walked in between street lights, which means visibility could have been a contributing factor in the collision.
Officials did not specify what kind of truck the driver drove but said upon impact, the pedestrian, a 45-year-old man, was hit and fell to the side of the vehicle.
The man was hospitalized, where he later succumbed to fatal injuries.
