SALT LAKE CITY — Today, the Salt Lake City Police Department began an investigation into a deadly hit-and-run crash that killed a woman.
This investigation started at 8:29 p.m. on Friday, October 13, 2023, when SLC911 received reports of a traffic crash involving a pedestrian on Redwood Road at approximately 200 South.
Officers responded and found the woman, deceased, in a northbound lane of Redwood Road.
Witnesses told officers the car that hit the woman – as she crossed east on Redwood Road – continued northbound.
Currently, there is no suspect information available to release about the driver or their car.
The Salt Lake City Police Department believes there may be significant damage to the car because of the crash.

Due to the investigation, officers have closed northbound Redwood Road from 400 South and South Temple.

This crash marks the 17th traffic-related fatality in Salt Lake City for 2023.
