KEARNS, Utah (AP) - Police say a teenage motorcyclist has died in a hit-and-run in Utah.

Witnesses told police that the 19-year-old motorcyclist was hit by a Jeep when leaving a gas station in Kearns Sunday. Police say the driver fled the crash and the Jeep was found abandoned two hours later.

Unified Police Lt. Lex Bell says witnesses told police that motorcyclist Edgar Osvaldo Frayre-Rodriguez made a wide turn into oncoming traffic. Bell says Rodriguez’s friends told police that the teen had just purchased the motorcycle on Saturday.

Police say the Jeep’s license plate was cancelled, which could mean the previous owner recently sold it to another person.

Bell says detectives saw a lot of personal property in the Jeep and were waiting for a search warrant Sunday afternoon.
