SALT LAKE CITY — An unidentified man, 32, was struck by a truck Wednesday and is in critical condition, according to police.

Officers from the Salt Lake City Police Department spotted the man lying on the road at 1800 South and State Street. Emergency medical technicians took the man to a local hospital with injuries that were considered life-threatening, Salt Lake City police detective Dalton Beebe said.

The man driving the truck stayed at the scene of the crash and is cooperating with investigators.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, detectives and officers believe the man was crossing the road against traffic when the driver of the truck struck him,” Salt Lake City police said.

Police shut down northbound traffic near 1800 South after a car hit a pedestrian on Wednesday afternoon shortly after the collision that was at approximately 3:43 p.m. Wednesday.

SLCPD posted on X that 1900 South to Coatsville Avenue on State Street was closed while officers investigated.

Police later said the man was expected to survive and his injuries were no longer considered life-threatening as of approximately 9 p.m. Wednesday. The investigation is ongoing.
