On Friday, police identified the man as Salt Lake City resident Randall Stewart.
Keller said Stewart, who was homeless at the time, was crossing 300 West near 3300 South when he was struck by the truck.
At the time of the crash, South Salt Lake Police Lieutenant Gregg Carlson said Stewart was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.
