SHARE VICTIM OF ROAD ACCIDENT STILL UNIDENTIFIED

Salt Lake police say they still don't know who the man is who was struck by a car and killed on Sept. 9.

Detectives are hoping the public can help.The victim, between 25 and 35 years old, was crossing 700 East near 2720 South about 10 p.m. that day when he was killed. He stepped off the traffic island and was struck by the mirror of a vehicle that swerved to avoid him, said detective Joseph Kettenring.

The man then tumbled onto the roadway, was struck by a second vehicle and killed instantly.

The pedestrian had no identification on him. The most identifying characteristic, however, is a tattoo on his right upper arm of a waterfall and two leopards.

The victim has a scar on his right cheek and had several days growth of beard. He was wearing a blue and black plaid shirt, blue plaid shorts, white socks and gray tennis shoes. He is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, 175 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair in a ponytail.

One woman told police he may have been staying with a cousin in the area, but officers have been unsuccessful in determining where that may have been. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Kettenring at 799-3309 or 799-3000.
