MURRAY — A barefoot woman who Utah Highway Patrol troopers say ran into traffic on I-15 was hospitalized in extremely critical condition Friday after being hit by two vehicles.

The woman, whose name and age has not yet been released, was hit about 6:40 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-15 near 5100 South. She was first hit by the side mirror of a pickup truck and then by the front end of another car, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

Investigators could not find any car on the road that belonged to the woman. Troopers could not say Friday where the woman was from. The possibility that the woman purposely ran into traffic was being investigated, according to the UHP.

The woman was still alive Friday evening, according to UHP trooper Lawrence Hopper, but no change in her condition had been reported.
