LAYTON — A 34-year-old man was killed Tuesday evening in an auto-pedestrian accident in Layton, police said.

The man was crossing the road in a poorly lit area at 1650 N. Hill Field Road and was not using a crosswalk when he was hit by a driver, according to police.

The man, whose name was not immediately released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the driver was cooperating with investigators.

The incident marks the third auto-pedestrian fatality in Utah since Sunday.
