SALT LAKE CITY — All southbound Interstate 15 lanes have reopened near 900 North in Salt Lake City after a man was hit and killed early Thursday morning.

Lt. Wade Breur with the Utah Highway Patrol said authorities received reports of a body on the freeway around 1 a.m.

Medical crews confirmed the victim was deceased upon arrival and UHP closed all southbound lanes for several hours while clean-up crews cleared the scene.

“No vehicles stopped or have reported striking an individual in the area,” UHP Sgt. Cameron Roden said. “The individual is male and no identification has been located.”

Roden added the incident is under investigation and the state medical examiner’s office is using a fingerprint scanner to try and identify the victim.

Troopers asked anyone with information to come forward so they can give peace to family and friends. Investigators believe the man might have been hit by a semi-truck, and the driver might not have realized they stuck a person.

All southbound I-15 lanes reopened just after 5 a.m. Thursday.
