SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake police are investigating a Friday hit-and-run accident that left a child in critical condition.
A 5-year-old girl was crossing the street near 1000 West and 400 South around 9:40 p.m. as she was going to a friend’s house when a westbound vehicle struck her, said Salt Lake Police Sgt. Robin Heiden.
The vehicle was described as a light gray or tan four-door sedan with a black and white tribal bumper sticker above the rear license plate. The vehicle would likely have some front-end damage, said Heiden.
”This is the type of case that Utah law says that you are supposed to stop if you are involved in an accident and render aid or at least call 911,” the sergeant said. “This vehicle didn’t even stop and continued to go.”
Heiden said that since the child was not in a crosswalk, the driver most likely would not have been at fault, but now having fled the scene, he or she could face felony charges.
Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call 801-799-3000.
