WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, Nov. 20, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A man was transported to the hospital Monday evening after he was hit by a car near 3112 S. Redwood Road.
West Valley City Police Lt. Amy Maurer said the pedestrian was not in a crosswalk when the driver of a southbound vehicle failed to see him in the road.
Maurer said the man was bleeding from facial cuts and, because of that, was taken to the hospital in “charlie,” or serious, condition. She said he then was upgraded to stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
The accident happened at about 6:05 p.m.
“It was a combination of lighting and jaywalking,” that prevented the driver from seeing the pedestrian, Maurer said.
It wasn’t known if anyone would be cited in this incident.
