OGDEN — An elderly woman was hit and killed by a car while crossing busy Harrison Boulevard near 15th Street.

Police said the accident happened about 10 p.m. Tuesday, when 78-year-old Mary Deats was attempting to cross the road and was struck by the car, which tried to avoid her.

"There were no crosswalks," Ogden Police Lt. Scott Sangberg said Wednesday.

The woman died at McKay-Dee Hospital. No one has been cited in the crash. Ogden police said they were still trying to determine who's at fault.

"We won't know until the investigation is through and screened with the county attorney's office," Sangberg said.
