A Salt Lake County man remained in critical condition Friday with injuries he received when his car crashed into a tree Wednesday.
The man has since been identified as Robert S. Craft, 25. The Deseret News incorrectly reported in Thursday editions that Craft had died.Moments after skidding across a snow-slicked street in South Salt Lake and smashing into a car waiting at a traffic signal late Wednesday night, Craft apparently crashed into a tree a few blocks from the first collision, police said.
He was taken to LDS Hospital, where he remained in critical condition in the intensive care unit Friday.
A man who was killed in a separate accident about 4:30 a.m. Thursday has still not been identified. Utah Highway Patrol troopers said the man was walking on I-15 near North Temple when he was struck by a pickup truck driven by a 56-year-old Holladay man.
Witnesses said the victim, described as an Indian male in his late 20s, ran out in front of the truck and was thrown over the top of it on impact. Another witness told troopers it looked like the man was trying to kill himself.
Trooper Jim Bourden said efforts are under way to try and identify the man. He said the victim was not dressed for the weather.
