Heiden said the driver briefly left the scene by quickly returned and was fully cooperating with investigators. Because of that, it was uncertain Monday if the driver would face a possible hit-and-run charge.

The man had no identification on him.

Heiden said anyone with information on the victim and/or the accident is asked to call Salt Lake City police at 801-799-3000.
