Sheriff’s report: Three girls hit by a car in Pinebrook driveway
On Thursday, three girls aged 8 to 10 years old were hit by a car just after they’d gotten off a school bus in Pinebrook, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
The girls sustained non-life-threatening injuries, according to the report, and one was transported by ambulance to a hospital.
Deputies indicated that there was no evidence the 18-year-old Park City driver was impaired or distracted. The accident, which occurred at low speed, happened around 3:45 p.m., and the driver said glare from the sun obstructed his view.
The girls were in the driveway of the driver’s home, Sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Wright said, and it appears that the girls may have been picking something up that had fallen on the driveway.
The driver was not cited but the responding deputy is recommending the County Attorney’s Office screen the case for charges.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement responded to several other calls between Monday, Nov. 16, and Sunday, Nov. 22, including executing a search warrant that resulted in multiple felony drug charges and an incident of stalking after a 59-year-old man broke off a sexual relationship with a 27-year-old woman.
