Two women and a 7-year-old girl were injured Saturday afternoon when an SUV crashed into a Famous Footwear store in Sugar House.
One woman was trapped under the Buick Enclave after its driver, an 81-year-old woman, lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the shoe store, located in The Commons shopping center at 1170 E. 2100 South.
The trapped woman was extricated by Salt Lake City Fire’s Heavy Rescue Squad and taken by ambulance to a hospital, where she is in critical condition.
The other woman, who is 21 weeks pregnant, and her 7-year-old daughter had minor injuries and were taken to a hospital by a family member.
The driver of the SUV had minor injuries from the crash.
The Salt Lake City Police Department said in a news release that an initial investigation indicated the driver mistook the gas pedal for the brake pedal.
The crash remains under investigation.
