WEST JORDAN — An elderly man suffered serious injuries after being hit by a truck on Redwood Road while trying to cross the street in his wheelchair Tuesday evening, police said.
The man in his 90s was crossing Redwood Road near 7200 South when he was struck at about 7:30 p.m., West Jordan police officer Ian Adams said.
The man was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition. Police don't believe he was in a crosswalk when he was hit, according to Adams.
The man driving the truck was not believed to be impaired, the officer said. The driver was not injured.
The speed limit of Redwood Rood is 45 mph in that area, Adams said.
"We don’t know exactly what occurred that led (the injured man) to be in that position in the street," he said.
