A northbound vehicle hit the woman about 9 p.m. as she crossed 300 East at 2763 South, said South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller.

"She was not in a crosswalk, but she was in very close proximity to a crosswalk," he said.

An ambulance transported the woman to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead, Keller said. Police have not released her name.

Keller said there was no indication of alcohol use with the male driver or the victim. The case will be turned over to the district attorney's office to determine if any charges would be filed, he said.
