Vehicle backs into teen in Prospector

A vehicle backed into a teenager in Prospector in early March, the Park City Police Department was told, indicating that it did not appear that the boy was injured.

The Police Department received the report at 4:12 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3. The incident occurred earlier in the day.

Rick Ryan, a police captain, said the department was told the boy was crossing the street at the intersection of Kearns Boulevard and Cooke Drive when the vehicle backed into him. The boy, who is 14 years old, did not tell anyone what occurred and went to school, Ryan said.

He told his father he had been hit by the vehicle, prompting the father to file a report with the police, according to Ryan. The captain said the boy did not suffer a visible injury. The father took the boy to the emergency room at Park City Medical Center. Doctors did not find any injuries, Ryan said.

Ryan said the boy described two different vehicles that may have backed into him. He was not able to provide a detailed description, though, he said. The Police Department does not have leads in the case.
