WATCH: Exclusive video shows woman survives Salt Lake City hit and run

SALT LAKE CITY — KSL NewsRadio has exclusively obtained footage of a Salt Lake City hit-and-run, where a woman was struck while out for a run in the Avenues neighborhood.

 

This happened on the morning of March 12, around 9:30 a.m. when a doorbell cam facing T Street in the Avenues caught the footage of a woman going for a run when all of a sudden a white car at speed rams through garbage cans. In the video, you see the woman flung from the street onto a lawn as the car hits her.

The driver is then seen speeding away. 

Moments later three witnesses come running, one of them being Christian McCrea.

“It was a really loud crash,” said McCrea. “It sounded like something on a construction site. And I looked over and I saw a lady on the ground  Over there just laying on the ground. I immediately knew a hit-and-run happened. And I was expecting a dead person.”

The woman was responsive moments after McCrea and two others stayed with her until emergency response arrived.

We walked up to her and she was barely coming to,” McCrea said. “She’s on the ground and she seemed very disoriented. But she didn’t think she was — you know that kind of thing like, oh, I think I’m OK. And I was, like, no, stay on the ground right now… Do not move at all’.”

This comes after four other recent incidents in the Salt Lake area of a hit-and-run, where Ahn Duy Pham was charged with driving around the Wasatch Front, intentionally hitting female pedestrians at random. In these incidents, six women were hit and injured, and we’ve reported on a fifth hit-and-run from March 2. The victim in that case believes she too was targeted by Pham.

Salt Lake City Police confirmed they’re investigating the other hit-and-runs but it’s too soon for them to say if they’re connected to Pham.

We want to hear from you.
