Busy I-15 off-ramp closed by crash involving pedestrian

SALT LAKE CITY — One of the busiest connection points to downtown Salt Lake City was closed for almost 3 hours, after a crash involving a pedestrian hit by a vehicle.

Salt Lake Police and the Utah Highway Patrol closed the 6th South offramp from NB I-15 and EB I-80 into the city for their investigation, between about 5 AM and 8 AM on Wednesday morning.

 

Police say a man was crossing 6th South at about 4th West when he was hit by a car going eastbound at 4:54 AM.

The victim was taken to a local hospital in extremely critical condition. Police could not say for sure if he was crossing with or against traffic.

Police say the driver is cooperating with their investigation.

A similar crash last August just about a block away closed the off-ramp for hours and snarled traffic around the valley.
