The 53-year-old man died two days after the crash was reported at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday on North City Parkway near Bonanza Road and the Interstate 15 overpass, the Metropolitan Police Department said.

The two victims were taken to University Medical Center, where one died and the other was treated for “moderate” injuries, police said.

The motorist fled the scene, police said.
