SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, June 24, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — The Salt Lake City Police Department is investigating a crash that critically injured a 64-year-old woman Friday.

“This investigation started at 12:16 p.m. when SLC911 received information about a crash involving a van and a person near Redwood Road and North Temple Street,” an SLCPD press release said.

“Officers arrived and found the victim on the ground. Paramedics transported the woman to a local hospital in critical condition. No updates on her condition are available.”
