Vehicle hits Salt Lake City woman near Tanger Outlets
A 71-year-old Salt Lake City woman was hit by a vehicle while walking in a crosswalk near the Tanger Outlets in Kimball Junction last week, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
A Sheriff’s Office report states the driver was traveling “very slowly” when she hit the pedestrian on Landmark Drive on Oct. 18. The driver, a 61-year-old woman from Riverton, told officers she saw the woman on the sidewalk, but did not see her crossing until she was in front of the vehicle.
The victim was alert when she was taken to Park City Hospital, the Sheriff’s Office report states. No details about the extent of her injuries was available as of Tuesday.
The driver of the vehicle was not issued a citation, according to Lt. Andrew Wright. He said witnesses told officers the vehicle was not traveling more than the posted speed limit. The report states another vehicle was blocking the view of the crosswalk.
