LAYTON, Utah — A pizza delivery driver is reportedly cooperating with Layton police after an accident that sent a child to Primary Children’s hospital in critical condition.

Police said that a 7-year-old boy was struck by a vehicle Sunday night while the child was riding his bike in a neighborhood near 255 East and 3700 North in Layton.


Sgt. Mike Donnelly said that rescue officials determined the injuries were critical, and the child was life-flighted to Primary Children’s hospital.

Police said that the driver remained on the scene and cooperated with the investigation. 

That investigation continues, but Sgt. Donnelly said that neither foul play nor any type of intoxication is suspected. The driver was not arrested or cited for the accident.

By Sunday evening, police reported that the child remained in critical care.
