SALT LAKE CITY — A 74-year-old woman was hospitalized in critical condition Monday after being hit by a car in Sugar House.

Salt Lake police said they received multiple 911 calls around 10:48 a.m. about a woman who had been hit by a car near 2135 S. 900 East. When firefighters responded to the scene, they found the woman in the road and began providing life-saving aid.

The woman was then transported to the hospital via ambulance, where she remains in critical condition.

Investigators say they believe the driver turned onto 900 East from a business and hit the woman who was crossing the street. The driver is cooperating with the investigation, according to police.

Utah has already seen a marked increase in auto-pedestrian fatalities this year compared to 2021, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

Police have not released any additional information, including the identities of the victim or the driver.
