SLCPD searches for SUV involved in 41-year-old's suspected hit-and-run

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — The Salt Lake City Police Department is searching for an SUV they say was involved in a hit-and-run late last week.

Police said the alleged hit-and-run happened Friday, June 14, shortly after 1:30 a.m. near 1400 South State Street. A woman was reportedly found on the ground in a nearby parking lot with serious, life-threatening injuries.

During their investigation, SLCPD learned that 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 before the crash but was not previously injured,” SLCPD said in a statement. “Two people from the SUV got out and checked on the woman, but got back into the SUV and left the scene.”

The woman was hospitalized and has since recovered. Police said she remained in stable condition.

Detectives are searching for the SUV and passengers inside. The Ford Explorer is described as a newer model with a wraparound veranda and chrome or silver wheels.

Anyone with information about the SUV, the crash or people associated with the SUV is asked to call the Salt Lake City Police Department at 801-799-3000 and reference case 24-130079.
