TREMONTON — A 6-year-old girl remained hospitalized Thursday with injuries suffered when she was struck by a car two days earlier.
Mary Herran, of Collinston, was admitted to Primary Children’s Medical Center in critical condition after the Tuesday collision.
An update on her condition was not immediately available but Thursday Tremonton Sgt. Kevin Allred said her injuries were serious, but not life threatening.
The girl, who was walking in a crosswalk, was hit at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday by an eastbound 1999 Saturn driven by Cory J. Poulsen, 39, of Tremonton, police said.
Police said the child left her mother from a corner at Main and Tremont streets to enter the crosswalk. The traffic signal for Poulsen reportedly had just turned yellow, police said, and the driver was unable to stop in time.
The child was treated first at Bear River Valley Hospital and then flown to Primary Children’s in Salt Lake City.
No citations were initially issued. Thursday Allred said the investigation has been concluded. "Citations are not likely," he said.
Three witnesses agreed as to what happened, he said, including the mother, who was understandably traumatized.
Main Street in Tremonton is a state road but a Utah Highway Patrol spokesman said Thursday the agency doesn’t get involved with traffic accidents inside city limits unless there are exigent circumstances.
