WOODS CROSS, Utah — Utah Highway Patrol is investigating the scene of a fatal auto-pedestrian crash that occurred early Sunday morning in Davis County.

According to Utah Highway Patrol, the call came in to Bountiful Dispatch at around 6:40 a.m. reporting a crash involving multiple vehicles and a pedestrian on northbound I-15 near 2600 South in Wood Cross.

Once troopers arrived on scene, the pedestrian, a local male in his mid-30's, was pronounced dead. His identity has not yet been released, pending notification of his family and next-of-kin.

The crash prompted the closure of the northbound lanes of I-15 for approximately three hours as crews investigated and cleaned up the scene, with the lanes opening up just after 11:00 a.m.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
