County Sheriff’s Report
A motorist allegedly struck a mother and her two children while they were crossing Landmark Drive near Wal-Mart Monday afternoon, firefighters say.
"A vehicle pulling out of Wal-Mart struck the woman and two children they were thrown about 10 feet," Park City Fire District spokeswoman Tricia Hurd said. "The vehicle was turning onto Landmark (Drive)."
The car did not hit another woman walking with the family, she added.
According to Hurd, the woman sustained "minor injuries."
Both children were transported via ambulance to Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City as a "precautionary measure," she said, adding that the injuries were described as "scrapes and bruises."
The woman who was struck is 24 years old and the children are 5 years old and 2 years old, Summit County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Mike Dorman said, adding that the 20-year-old, female driver was not injured or issued a citation.
The driver turned left onto Landmark and struck the people while she was traveling in the center lane, he added.
Meanwhile, nobody was injured when a house on Moose Hollow Road was struck by lightning June 9 around 8:14 a.m., Hurd said.
"It was an explosion," she said. "It blew the eaves off the home [and] some sort of a casing that goes with the sprinkler system was blown off about 75 feet."
Investigators believe lightning struck near the "peak of the roof," Hurd said, adding, "the residents were home."
"There were holes blown in the stucco, there was damage throughout the whole thing," she said.
In a separate incident Friday, a man was nearly killed while working with a gas-powered saw inside a home on Big Spruce Way.
"They think he was overcome by carbon monoxide," Hurd said. "He did not lose consciousness but was unable to get himself out."
Another man inside the house found the victim who was using the saw to remodel the home.
"Make sure you work in adequate ventilation," Hurd warned.
