SALT LAKE CITY — A Salt Lake woman was killed in an auto-pedestrian accident Tuesday morning.
Just after 7 a.m., Dorothy Bagley, 81, was hit while crossing 1000 North near 1450 West. She was not in a crosswalk, said Salt Lake Police Lt. Scott White. Bagley was pronounced dead a short time later at a local hospital.
Prior to being hit, she had parked her car on the side of the road along the curb, and for an unknown reason got out and began crossing the street.
"We don't know why she ran across the street. It was almost like she forgot something or was trying to get something to a friend," White said.
Bagley was hit by a man driving a minivan. He told police he didn't see the woman until it was too late.
"He said he just had no idea anyone was in the road," White said.
Speed and impairment did not appear to be factors, according to investigators. They were also looking into whether rain played a role in the accident. White said there were several accidents Tuesday morning around Salt Lake City, possibly due to the weather.
