LAYTON, Utah — A 16-year-old boy died after he was struck by a pickup truck Thursday night, according to officials with the Layton Police Department.
Police said the boy was in a crosswalk at the intersection of Main Street and Angel Street, but he crossed the road against the right of way.
The 71-year-old driver of the truck, who had a green light while driving southbound on Main Street, struck the boy around 8:30 p.m.
