WEST VALLEY CITY — Police identified the woman who apparently ran in front of a UTA bus Friday morning.

Killed was:

Ludmila Sukkari, 37, West Valley City.

Sukkari crossed in front of the bus Friday on Redwood Road on the west side of 3750 South.

Although the bus driver said he saw the woman, he was not able to stop soon enough to avoid hitting her. Sukkari suffered a massive head injury, and emergency workers found her dead at the scene.

West Valley Police Lt. Lance Call said notification of family members was difficult because investigators only had an apartment address in West Valley City. Eventually a friend was located and family members were notified in Czechoslovakia.

The investigation is ongoing.
