Sheriff’s report: DUI arrest after 11-year-old hit by car in Pinebrook

A 36-year-old Salt Lake City woman was arrested after driving on a sidewalk in Pinebrook and hitting an 11-year-old girl with her car, causing minor injuries, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and a probable cause statement.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and deputies indicated they would recommend felony charges because it was the woman’s third DUI offense within two years, according to the report.

Just after 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, deputies responded to a report of a vehicle striking a child in Pinebrook. The accident occurred near the intersection of Pointe Road and Pinebrook Boulevard in a residential neighborhood just west of the nearby shopping complex.

Deputies indicated the woman had driven on the sidewalk and struck the child, causing injuries including scrapes to the girl’s left ankle, right hand and right foot.

The driver was acting erratically and frequently contradicted herself, according to the probable cause statement. She performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and prescription medication.

Deputies indicated the woman’s BMW did not have the interlock ignition device she was required to use after previous violations of the law. That device requires a driver not to have alcohol in their system before the vehicle will turn on. Deputies referred to multiple other violations including incorrect license plates and registration, multiple outstanding warrants and driving without insurance.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement responded to several other calls between Monday, Nov. 2, and Sunday, Nov. 8, including multiple thefts from vehicles and a Park City ambulance sliding off the road in wintry conditions.
