PROVO — A BYU student suffered a fractured skull Wednesday after she was hit by a car while crossing the street.
Police say the 22-year-old woman was crossing the street at 300 East and 500 North about 5:30 p.m. when she was struck by a dark blue BMW SUV heading west on 500 North.
After striking the woman, the driver of the vehicle pulled over, paused and then sped away without offering assistance to the woman, Provo police detective Robert Payne said.
The woman, who was recovering Thursday at a local hospital, was crossing the street legally in an intersection at the time of the accident, Payne said. She was not able to describe the driver, but the SUV suffered significant damage to its front end at the scene of the accident, police said.
"We recovered a lot of debris at the scene of the accident, and that's where we got the information about the SUV," Payne said.
Anyone with information about the accident or the driver of the SUV can call Provo police at 801-852-6210.
