SOUTH OGDEN, Utah – A man was killed in a vehicle crash in South Ogden Sunday after a vehicle drove through a red light and struck another vehicle.

Sgt. Dave Labbe of the South Ogden Police Department said a vehicle traveling southbound on Harrison Boulevard turned left onto Highway 89 and was struck by a car traveling westbound that drove through a red light around 4 p.m.

A 93-year-old man in the car that was turning left was killed in the impact. It was not immediately clear if the driver of the other vehicle was injured.

Utah Department of Transportation officials tweeted that the US-89/Washington Boulevard was closed at Harrison Boulevard due to the crash. The tweet stated the north, south and westbound lanes were closed in the area. The lanes were reopened later Sunday evening.

Labbe said the accident is under investigation. He said at this time it does not appear that alcohol, drugs or distracted driving were factors in the crash. FOX 13 News will have more information as it becomes available.

    Wow, I was turning onto Harrison right after this accident happened, I am so saddened to hear of this life lost. I myself was in a collision Thursday due to someone else negligence. My heart pours out to the family of both parties involved.

    Utah needs to implement red light cameras like Colorado. You run a red light, $75. These types of crashes rarely happen here. You can even pull too far onto the crosswalk or you get a ticket.

      There was a time when PhotoCop was used in West Valley City. It was misused, abused, and finally as a result severe restrictions were placed on it’s use by our legislature. Red light cameras won’t be coming to Utah anytime this century.
