SALT LAKE CITY — A 51-year-old man was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident Tuesday morning.

About 8:45 a.m. a man was crossing State Street near 3650 South when he was struck by a small passenger vehicle near the center lane, said South Salt Lake police detective Gary Keller.

The man was not crossing in a crosswalk.

All southbound lanes of State Street were expected to be closed from 3500 South to 3750 South until about noon while police conduct their investigation, Keller said.

Police had not released the man's name late Tuesday, pending notification of his family.
