MILLCREEK — A woman is in critical condition after being clipped by a car on Highland Drive.

Salt Lake County sheriff's deputies said the 29-year-old woman was crossing the street near 4600 South Friday night in an area that was not well lit. The woman was not in a crosswalk and was wearing dark-colored clothing, sheriff's chief deputy Shane Hudson said.

"As she was crossing the street she fell and a northbound driver saw what appeared to be a box in the road," Hudson said Friday. "He swerved to miss her and clipped her."

Police said the man stopped to help the woman, who was taken to Intermountain Medical Center in critical condition with head and internal injuries.
