An 11-year-old boy was hit by a semi-truck and killed in Pleasant Grove on Monday, police said.

At approximately 6 p.m., the boy was struck by a semi making a right-hand turn on a red light, said Capt. Britt Smith with Pleasant Grove police.

It appeared to investigators that the driver had not seen the child, who Smith said was crossing "legally and appropriately."

Police did not suspect the semi driver to be impaired and said he had been cooperative with the investigation.

Police did not identify the deceased and said they did not plan to Monday night.

The investigation was ongoing. So far, no charges have been filed, Smith said.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story identified the boy killed as being 12 years old, which was the initial report from police.
