TOOELE COUNTY, Utah — A person who was walking on I-80 Friday night has died from his injuries after being hit by a semi-truck.
Utah Highway Patrol says the victim was walking in the right lane around 10:40 p.m. when he was struck by a triple-trailer semi. He was airlifted in critical condition to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries Saturday morning.
UHP said there was a vehicle parked in the emergency lane 1/4 mile east of the accident, which was about 11 miles from the Nevada state line. The victim had a skateboard with him, as well as a phone with an open GPS route to exit 4. Officials believe he may have run out of fuel or had a mechanical issue with his car.
The victim's name nor age have not been released as of Saturday night.
