An 83-year-old Salt Lake woman died Wednesday after she was hit by a sport utility vehicle near Ala Napuaa Place and Ala Ilima Street.

A 62-year-old Salt Lake man was driving a Ford Explorer about 4:40 p.m. Wednesday when the SUV hit the woman who was crossing the street. Police did not specify which street the pedestrian was walking across. The driver was not injured.

The woman was taken initially in serious condition to a hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Many drivers only pay attention to the traffic and forget about the people crossing it.

Either that, or paying attention to their cell phones. Put the phone down and pay attention to your surroundings. Especially now during the holidays.

Fact is.... drivers who hit/kill pedestrians are not charged with a crime unless it is on purpose or run over a politician. It is an "accident". you can have as many as 5 accidents in Hawaii until you license is "suspended" for a year (you will probably drive around anyways, cause they will just give you probation for that). In most states, hitting a pedestrian or causing death is manslaughter. very few exceptions. except life in Hawaii is not as important as elsewhere.

The driver drunk? On drugs? Surfing? Put him in jail, and lose his driving privilege for life.

Driver was 62 years old: could be part of the problem. Additionally, the article only said the 83 year old victim was "crossing the street".....didn't say if she was in a cross walk or not. It's hard enough to pay attention to driving with all our traffic, compounded by people sometimes randomly just "crossing the street". Would they think of similarly "crossing the freeway"???

Idiocy! "...hard enough to pay attention to driving with all our traffic" is hardly an excuse. It is the driver's responsibility to watch for pedestrians and cars. If necessary, drive slower. You would sing a different tune if that 83 years old was your sister.

People always speed in Salt Lake, it's like they got to be somewhere real quick. Seen too many near misses with people and cars.
