LAYTON — A man was hit by a car and died in Layton late Tuesday night, just hours after another man was hit and killed on a nearby road, officials said.
The first man who died was identified as 34-year-old Marcus McGaha, according to Layton Police Lt. Brady Fitzpatrick. He was killed after crossing the road in a poorly lit area that did not have a crosswalk near 1650 N. Hill Field Road.
The second man was killed a few hours later about 10:45 p.m. when he was also crossing a road that did not have a crosswalk near 450 N. Main St., Fitzpatrick said. He was an older man, but police have not yet been able to identify him.
Both drivers are cooperating with police and the ongoing investigations. Neither of them appeared to be able to initially see the pedestrians before they hit them, Fitzpatrick said.
Police urged pedestrians and drivers to be aware and cautious of their surroundings and to cross at designated areas.
