Boy dies after auto-pedestrian accident in Willard

A 14-year-old boy died Sunday morning after being injured in an auto-pedestrian accident in Willard, Saturday night around 7 p.m.

Willard Police Chief Jean Loveland said Braxton Phetsysouk was attempting to cross the street near 850 North Main when he was struck by a car. He was airlifted to Primary Children’s Medical Center where he later passed away from his injuries.

The car was driven by 18-year-old Bronson Beckstrand.

Loveland said the case is under investigation but appears to be an accident. There was no crosswalk in the area and not well lit.

Officers from the Willard City Police Department were assisted by troopers from the Utah Highway Patrol who helped with traffic control and diagramming the accident scene.
