SALT LAKE CITY — Police on Friday responded to two traffic incidents that occurred within minutes of each other on 400 South.
Just after 12 p.m., a 35-year-old man was hit by a Dodge Durango while crossing the against the light at 400 South and 600 East, Salt Lake City police detective Veronica Montoya said. The man was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition, but his status was later upgraded to poor condition.
The driver of the Durango initially fled the scene, Montoya said, but officials eventually caught up to the woman. She was cited and her vehicle was impounded, Montoya said.
Approximately 10 minutes after that accident, a 55-year-old man reportedly suffering from a medical condition hit two parked cars at 400 South and 900 East, Montoya said.
The man crashed across the street from a medical training class that was being offered, police said. Members of the class rushed to the scene, and finding that the driver was not breathing, broke out the car's window.
Someone with medical training used a defibrillator to revive the man, police said. The man had a pulse when an ambulance arrived. No additional information about his condition was available Friday night.
