The Deseret News reports a Brownsville man was killed last Saturday after being struck by a vehicle in Salt Lake City, Utah.

About the Salt Lake City Pedestrian Accident

On Saturday, June 20, 23-year-old Adrian Gonzalez of Brownsville, Texas was struck by a car and killed at 3:30 a.m. at 771 N. Victory Road.

The young man was wearing dark clothing, so the driver of the car could not see him clearly, thus causing the accident. Salt Lake police say that it was an odd place for Gonzalez to be walking at such an early time of morning, especially because there was no car found nearby.

The driver of the vehicle did not appear to be impaired in any way.
