SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake police are asking for the public's help in finding the occupants of a vehicle that ran over a woman and then drove off, leaving the victim with life-threatening injuries.

On June 14, police received a report about 1:30 a.m. of a woman on the ground in a parking lot at 1472 S. State. Officers arrived to find a 41-year-old woman in life-threatening condition.

"During the investigation, officers and detectives learned that at approximately 12:45 a.m … the driver of a light-colored Ford Explorer pulled into the parking lot and ran over the woman. Detectives believe the woman was already on the ground prior to the crash but was not previously injured," Salt Lake police said Friday.

It was not immediately known why the woman was originally on the ground. Surveillance video from a nearby business shows what appears to be younger occupants of the SUV looking under the vehicle before driving away.

Police say two people in the SUV got out and checked on the woman but then got back in the vehicle and left.

Anyone with information about the driver and passenger is asked to call police at 801-799-3000.
