OGDEN -- A man was killed Wednesday night after being struck by a vehicle while crossing Wall Avenue.
The auto-pedestrian accident occurred at about 6:10 p.m. on Wall Avenue near 27th Street.
The man, who was identified as homeless and between 60 to 70 years old, was hit by an SUV driven by a woman.
The accident is being investigated by Ogden police.
There were no indications of speed or DUI on the driver's part, Ogden Police Lt. Tim Scott said.
A bystander had stopped near the accident and performed CPR on the man prior to first responders arriving, but the victim was pronounced dead on the scene, Scott said.
"It's so sad," Pam Hachmeister said, who works at the Ogden Rescue Mission. "He was probably just on his way to dinner."
She said she's so far seen three fatal accidents occur in that area.
"I really wish they'd just put another traffic light here," she said.
The stretch of road, frequented by the homeless because it fronts the St. Anne's Shelter and the Ogden Rescue Mission, is subject to complaints by the two organizations because of poor lighting and the lack of a visible crosswalk.
The latest accident occurred less than a month ago, when a 32-year-old woman was struck and killed while crossing Wall Avenue at Binford Street.
