WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — Police tape was seen surrounding a vehicle after a Granger High School student was hit by a vehicle in West Valley City just before noon Tuesday.

The West Valley City Police Department said the 15-year-old student was transported to the hospital in critical condition after being struck by an SUV on 3450 West just north of 3500 South.

Lt. M.T. Johnson said it appeared the student was crossing from the sidewalk and was in between some parked cars before darting across traffic when he was hit by a white SUV.

"His injuries were trauma to the head," Johnson said. "Once they got him to the hospital, it sounds like he also had some internal injuries. He is in critical condition."

The driver of the vehicle remained on the scene and is cooperating with the police department's traffic unit investigation. Johnson said it is not likely that the driver would face criminal charges.
