TAYLORSVILLE — A 39-year-old woman was killed Thursday night when she stepped off the curb in front of an oncoming car.
Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said the woman was hit about 10 p.m. while attempting to cross to the north side of 5400 South near the intersection of 2100 West. The woman was not at a crosswalk, and there were no nearby streetlights.
A Chevrolet Blazer headed east in the outside lane hit the woman as she stepped into the road, Hoyal said. The 21-year-old male driver and his passenger were unharmed. Initial reports indicate the driver was obeying the 45 mph speed limit, Hoyal said.
The injured woman was taken to Intermountain Medical Center in extremely critical condition and died about 40 minutes after the accident, Hoyal said.
It doesn't appear drugs or alcohol contributed to the accident, he said. The woman's name was not released Thursday night.
