TAYLORSVILLE — A 21-year-old woman is dead after being struck in a crosswalk Thursday night.

The woman was walking in a crosswalk at 3600 West and 5400 South but was attempting to cross against a red light, Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said. The woman was hit shortly before 9:30 p.m. and pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the vehicle that hit the woman, an Isuzu Trooper, initially left the scene of the accident but later returned and identified herself to police, Hoyal said.

Sections of the road remained closed Thursday night as police investigated the crash. The name of the victim was not immediately released.
