12-year-old boy hit and killed by construction truck in Pleasant Grove

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah — A 12-year-old boy was hit and killed by a construction truck Monday night.

Police say the boy was crossing in a crosswalk when a large construction truck turned red on a red light and struck him.

This was at State Street and Pleasant Grove Boulevard around 6 p.m.

It’s unclear at this point if the truck stopped at the red light first. Investigators say the driver apparently did not see the boy.

They stayed on the scene late into the evening. The boy’s name has not yet been released.

Police say their hearts go out to his family and friends.
