Driver hits woman on Main Street, prompts angry response by boyfriend
December 10, 2013
A driver struck a pedestrian on Main Street in the overnight hours on Saturday, sending the person to the hospital and prompting an angry response by the pedestrian’s boyfriend, the Park City Police Department said.
The accident was reported at 1:26 a.m. on the 500 block of Main Street. The Police Department said the driver was traveling downhill on 5th Street toward Main Street and was not able to stop at the intersection before hitting the woman.
The weather was bad at the time, making driving conditions tricky. The driver was cited on a count of driving too fast for the conditions, the Police Department said in an online statement.
The online statement said an ambulance took the woman to a hospital in fair condition. Details about her injuries were not available.
The police said the pedestrian’s boyfriend "was so angry when the incident occurred that he hit and broke the back window of the driver’s vehicle." A charge of criminal mischief against the boyfriend is being screened, Phil Kirk, a police captain, said.
The three people involved are from Park City. The driver is a 44-year-old man, the pedestrian is 24 years old and her boyfriend is 30 years old.
