On Sunday evening, a construction worker was killed on Interstate 215 in Utah. Troopers say the worker was walking in a construction zone when a truck drifted into a barreled off construction area and hit the worker. According to police, the truck was traveling at more than 40 miles per hour when it hit and killed the worker from behind.
The truck continued south after hitting the 20-year-old construction worker and police have not located the driver or the vehicle, which they describe as a blue and white pickup. Troopers say the truck may have significant damage from the accident.
Following the construction accident, traffic was backed up for several hours Sunday evening.
