Fatal pedestrian crash in Weber County

Tuesday October 4, 2022

On Tuesday, October 4, 2022, at about 11:30 pm, two pickup trucks, each towing trailers with construction equipment, were stopped in the left-hand emergency lane of Northbound I-15 prior to 24th street. The front truck and trailer had a flat tire on the left side. A third pickup was northbound in the left lane. As the third pickup approached the two in the left emergency lane, it sideswiped the rear truck and trailer. It then continued forward, hitting two pedestrians as they attempted to get back into their vehicle on the passenger side. One pedestrian was thrown over the median on the left shoulder of the southbound lanes. Both pedestrians were listed in critical condition. The ped on the southbound side was airlifted from the scene but died due to their injuries.

The left lane Southbound is closed at the crash location. The two left lanes are also closed northbound as crews complete their investigation and clean up.
