Hoyal said the driver was just pulling out of a daycare center, where he had dropped off his child, and did not see the woman walking near the entrance in time to avoid hitting her.

The woman was taken to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray by Unified Fire Authority paramedics.

No citations were immediately issued, as the accident remained under investigation.
