DAVIS COUNTY, Utah -- One person was killed in a crash involving a vehicle and a pedestrian on I-15 southbound in Davis County Thursday.

Dispatch officials confirm an individual was hit and killed by a vehicle on southbound I-15 near 500 South in Bountiful around 9:30 p.m.

Todd Royce of the Utah Highway Patrol said the vehicle involved is a motor home and the driver remained on scene. Several southbound lanes are closed in the vicinity, and as of 10:20 UHP expected those to remain closed for several hours.

UHP later said the incident is believed to be a suicide. Fox 13 News does not generally report on stories involving suicide unless there is a broader impact to the public, such as a police response and freeway closure.

If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide, help is available 24/7 by calling 1-800-273-TALK. Utahns can also visit Hope4Utah and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center for additional resources.
