Police believe an abandoned car found Thursday was involved in a Millcreek hit-and-run accident earlier this week that left a woman bicyclist in critical condition.

Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said police, who earlier released security camera images of the car, were tipped at 8:40 a.m. Thursday to the gray Acura TL sedan’s location.

Officers found the vehicle, which had windshield and fender damage consistent with the Tuesday morning collision, parked near 4600 S. Aspen Hollow Lane (3065 East).

"The vehicle has been placed in evidence and detectives are still investigating," Hoyal said, noting that the suspect — described as a white male, about 30,with short, spiky brown hair — remained at large.

The 43-year-old woman hit by the car remained in critical condition Thursday at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.

The incident occurred Tuesday at 8:07 a.m. near 3700 South and 2300 East. The victim was riding her bike on 2300 East along the west shoulder when a southbound car drifted off the road and struck her.

The driver then sped from the scene southbound, cut through the parking lot of a Fresh Market store and nearly hit another vehicle. The suspect was last seen driving north on 2300 East and making a right turn onto Arnett Drive.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call UPD at 801-743-5862.
