SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — A 50-year-old man died after being struck by a pick-up truck while crossing a South Jordan road Tuesday.
Police say the man was trying to head north when he stepped into oncoming traffic at River Front Parkway and 11400 South just before 7 a.m.
A car traveling eastbound was able to avoid the man, but a second vehicle, a black pick-up truck, hit the man. Suffering from severe injuries, the man was transported to the hospital where he later died.
It's not known why the man attempted to cross while traffic had a green light, but police do not believe impairment was a factor.
