LAYTON — A man on business from Florida was struck by an SUV and critically injured Thursday afternoon just outside Layton Hills Mall. 

David Caras, 51, was jogging on 1225 North directly east of the mall, police say, when a woman driving a Ford Escape collided with him just before 4:30 p.m.

Caras was airlifted to the University of Utah Hospital in critical condition, Layton Police Sgt. John Holden told the Standard-Examiner. Caras was last reported in critical but stable condition Friday.

The driver has not been cited but that may change depending on the results of the police investigation. 

Caras was on a business trip to Hill Air Force base, Holden said, and had planned to return home Friday.
