OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- An 18-year-old man was hit and killed by a car when he tried to get his glasses from the middle of the road.

That's according to Odgen police, who say Adrian Maxson died Tuesday night.

Officers say the teen had apparently dropped his glasses in the middle of Harrison Boulevard in Ogden. So, Maxson reportedly got out of his car and was looking for his glasses when police say a car hit him at about 40 miles-per-hour.

Officers say the teenager was taken to the hospital, where he died the next morning.
