STANSBURY PARK, Tooele County — A 63-year-old woman was in critical condition after she was hit by a car while trying to cross state Road 36 near the junction with I-80 late Friday night.

The pedestrian was flown by medical helicopter to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray with serious head injuries. The driver of the car was slightly injured and was transported to another hospital, according to a Utah Highway Patrol report.

At about 9:15 p.m. it was raining heavily as the woman apparently tried to cross the highway in an area not lit by streetlights, according to the report.
