A Taylorsville man struck by a car last week while trying to help people involved in a crash died at a hospital on Saturday, police reported Monday.

Rodriguez, who lives nearby, had just called 911 after witnessing a two-car collision in the intersection at Redwood Road and 5200 South.

He reportedly was checking on the drivers and passengers, who turned out not to have been injured.

Hoyal has said that witnesses reported Rodriguez was hit by a car that had a green light, and the 21-year-old male driver didn’t see him in time.

Hoyal said Monday the case is still being investigated and that the findings will be presented to Salt Lake County prosecutors, who will determine if criminal charges are filed.
