RICHFIELD -- Police say a central Utah woman didn't realize she'd been accidentally shot Sunday until she collapsed.
The Sevier County Sheriff's Office says 18-year-old Cheyenne Hibberd was standing near a pickup truck outside a home Sunday afternoon while she and her boyfriend and stopped to fix their flat tire.
Hibberd's boyfriend, 22-year-old Jesse Warenski, was reaching into his truck to grab a tire iron when his .30-06 rifle went off.
Hibberd started walking away from the truck and later told officers all she was thinking about was "taking a walk." She then felt pain on her left side and saw blood but kept walking. She then collapsed and Warenski called for help.
She was treated at a Provo hospital for a gunshot wound.
Police say the shooting was an accident.
