A male pedestrian was killed when he was hit by a crude oil tanker on SR-40 at milepost 15, near the Wasatch Commons apartments early Saturday morning. The semi-truck driver was uninjured in the crash. UDPS says the victim did not have any identification on him and he appears to be a transient. The name of the victim has not been released pending official identification and notification of next of kin. SR-40 was closed during the investigation. Speed and impairment do not seem to be factors in the crash.
