Woman in critical condition following auto-pedestrian crash in Utah County

UTAH COUNTY — A woman is in critical condition following an auto-pedestrian crash in Utah County.

Utah Highway Patrol Troopers were dispatched to a crash on SR-147, otherwise known as 6400 South, at 6:24 p.m.

UHP described the area of the crash as a low-light area without streetlights and said evidence suggests the vehicle in the incident was traveling at the posted speed limit of 50 mph.

The female pedestrian, UHP said, crossed the street to put out her trash scan and walked back into the roadway, directly in the path of the vehicle. Troopers believe the woman may have partially impaired vision and said she was wearing dark clothing, both things which contributed to the crash.

She has been transported to the hospital in critical condition. The driver remained on scene and is cooperating with investigators, UHP said.
