WEST VALLEY CITY — A man was critically injured on Tuesday night after a car struck him, police said.

The incident occurred about 6:30 p.m. at 3200 W. 3100 South, according to West Valley City police spokeswoman Roxeanne Vainuku.

The man was walking northbound on 3200 West in the roadway near a bike lane wearing dark-colored clothing, Vainuku said. He was not in a crosswalk, she added.

He was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the car that hit the man remained on the scene and cooperated with police.

The incident is under investigation but Vainuku said at this point there is no evidence the driver was impaired and it appears to be a terrible accident.
