SALT LAKE CITY — A fatal auto-pedestrian accident closed the I-15 and I-80 exits at 600 South Wednesday morning.

A 28-year-old woman was crossing the street between 400 West and 500 West when a vehicle exiting the freeway on 600 South hit her around 6:30 a.m., according to Salt Lake police detective Robert Ungricht. She was pronounced dead on the scene. Police have not released her name pending notification of family.

The car that hit her was driven by a man who is cooperating with police, Ungricht said.

The 600 South ramp was closed from I-15 and I-80 for a couple of hours but is now open. While it was closed, the I-15 400 South off ramp was open to all vehicles, not just HOV.
