PROVO — Provo police are investigating a fatal auto-pedestrian accident that left a 56-year-old man dead late Tuesday.
Responders were dispatched to 750 W. Center at about 11:34 p.m. after police said Mark Olsen was struck by a silver Volkswagen Passat driven by 18-year-old man. Olsen was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said the driver was traveling westbound in the left lane on Center Street when Olsen, who was crossing the street west of the crosswalk at 800 West, was struck.
Police said that because there were no witnesses to the incident, investigators will need to reconstruct the scene to determine cause and fault. Evidence is being processed as well. The driver of the Passat is cooperating with the investigation, police said.
Provo police encourage witnesses to call them with any information at 801-852-6210.
