Main Street auto-pedestrian collision fatal for Price man

Police investigate the scene of the Saturday night collision.


An auto-pedestrian collision claimed of the life of a Price man Saturday night after he was struck by a late model Dodge coupe in front of the Maverick Country Store on the east end of Price's Main Street.

According to Price City Police Capt. Bill Barnes, Max Moody, 61, was pronounced dead at Castleview Hospital just after 8:30 p.m. He was transported by ambulance from the scene.

While the investigation is still in its early stages, Barnes noted that, "At this point it looks like the people driving the vehicle were at no fault in this accident."

Moody was reportedly walking northwest prior to the incident and had stopped in the Maverick parking lot, said a pair of witnesses who saw the victim minutes before the collision.

Price Police blocked off Main Street from the Castle Rock Square to 700 East to collect evidence and begin their investigation.

According to Barnes, in addition to city police and county deputies, the Utah State Medical Examiner will play a part in the investigation of Moody's death.
