LAYTON, Utah (ABC4 News) – Dozens of people gathered for a candlelight vigil in Layton where a man died when he was struck by a passing car.

Marcus McGaha, 34, of Layton, was hit and killed while he was crossing the street Tuesday night.

At a vigil Wednesday night, McGaha was described as a son, brother, father, neighbor, and friend.

His name is tragically added to this week’s fast-growing list of Salt Lake Valley crash victims. Others were injured or killed amid a recent spike in auto-pedestrian crashes in northern Utah.

Another man died Tuesday night after he was hit by a car at 450 N. Main Street in Layton. A 13-year-old boy was hospitalized after he was hit in West Valley Wednesday morning.

Monday evening, a 12-year-old boy was hit and killed while he was walking home from the movies in Pleasant Grove. 

All the crashes happened at night or during the early morning when it was dark. Police have said they don’t suspect impairment in any of the cases and none of the drivers were cited.
