SLCPD Investigating Serious Injury Crash
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is investigating a crash that critically injured a 64-year-old woman.
This investigation started at 12:16 p.m. on Friday, June 24, 2022, when SLC911 received information about a crash involving a van and a person near Redwood Road and North Temple Street.
Officers arrived and found the victim on the ground. Paramedics transported the woman to a local hospital in critical condition. No updates on her condition are available.
Based on the preliminary investigation, officers believe the van, traveling north on Redwood Road, hit the woman as she rode a bicycle across Redwood Road against the traffic signal.
The driver of the van remained on scene and is cooperating with the ongoing investigation.
The Crash Analysis Reconstruction (CAR) Team and SLCPD Crime Lab technicians responded to the scene.
The CAR Team is a multi-jurisdictional crash team that investigates crashes involving serious physical injuries or death. Members of the CAR Team receive specialized training in collision examination, speed analysis, vehicle dynamics, occupant kinematics, scene photography, surveying equipment, crash scene mapping, evidence collection and computer aided drawing programs.
The CAR Team includes law enforcement from the Salt Lake City Police Department and several other Salt Lake Valley law enforcement agencies.
No further information on this case is being released. Neither the PIO nor the On-Duty Watch Commander are available for interviews.
Photos from the scene are being released.
