Oct 1, 2021, 7:50 AM | Updated: 2:23 pm

OGDEN, Utah — A 27-year-old man was killed in an auto vs. pedestrian crash Thursday night, according to Lt. John Cox with the Ogden Police Department.

Cox said emergency crews responded to the crash, which occurred at 27th Street and Washington Blvd., and found an officer with the Weber State Police Department performing CPR on the victim.

A Weber State police vehicle was at the scene of the crash and had significant damage to its hood. University officials later said the involved officer was on duty and has been placed on paid administrative leave.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the officer was not injured, according to authorities.

“We don’t want to jump to conclusions or have information that turns out to be incorrect or erroneous out there so I trust that the individual who knows how to look into this matter will be taking painstaking effort to piece together exactly what occurred,” said John L. Kowalewski, executive director of marketing and communications at Weber State University.

Police have not released the victim’s identity and haven’t said what happened leading up to the crash. Investigators were on scene for several hours overnight, and the crash is being investigated by the Ogden Police Department and Weber County Attorney’s Office.
