HARRISVILLE -- An 18-year-old bicyclist has died of his injuries after being hit by a car Monday.
Devereaux Hallett was being kept on life support but was confirmed deceased around 9 a.m. Thursday after no brain activity was detected, said Harrisville Police Chief Max Jackson.
At 7:52 a.m. Monday, Hallett was on a bicycle and crossing Wall Avenue westbound at North Street, Jackson said. Jeff Hanes, 38, the driver of a gray Saturn sedan, was traveling northbound on Wall and ran the red light, police say.
Hallett was struck by the car and thrown 65 to 70 feet. Police estimate the car was traveling 35 mph when it hit the bicyclist.
Emergency workers transported a critically injured Hallett to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden.
Hallett was not wearing a helmet, Jackson said.
Hanes was uninjured and has been cooperative in the police investigation, Jackson said.
The Weber County Attorney's Office will review the case and decide whether Hanes will face any charges, he said. A toxicology test is being processed to determine if Hanes was driving under the influence.
Local residents say several accidents occur at that intersection each month, one man calling it the "deathtrap of Ogden."
Neighbors are developing a petition to push the improvement of the intersection, which is near a Walmart and other stores, by adding sidewalks and warning lights.
