Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce said 46-year-old Burt J. Maez was walking along the highway where construction work had narrowed the westbound lanes to one when he was struck by an SUV.

The driver told troopers he did not see Maez along the darkened street in time to avoid hitting him.

No citations were issued, though the accident remained under investigation.

Court records indicate that Maez was a Magna resident.
