4-year-old struck by minivan dies from injuries
August 21st, 2008 @ 9:51pm
By Marc Giauque and Courtney Orton
Tragedy struck in Saratoga Springs today when a 4-year-old boy, who was riding his bike, was hit by a minivan driven by a 15-year-old neighbor. The teen was driving without a license.
The little boy was flown to Primary Children's Medical Center where he died. Doctors did all they could to save the young boy's life, but his internal injuries were too severe.
It was 7:30 a.m., the child was at a bus stop with his mother. As the bus pulled away, the 4-year-old boy hopped on his bicycle and crossed the street. "A 15-year-old, unlicensed driver who was driving alone, attempted a left turn to follow behind the school bus but didn't see the little boy on his bicycle," Cpl. Aaron Rosen, with the Saratoga Springs Police Department, said.
The 15-year-old rounded the corner and hit the 4-year-old boy as junior high students on the bus and the little boy's mother watched. "He was in shock and had apparent internal injuries and broken bones, that type of thing," Rosen said.
The two boys live on the same street. "He's a young man whose life will not be the same, and this little boy's family will not be the same," Rosen said.
Rosen says the 15-year-old had received a warning before for driving without a license. "He was in a family vehicle, and at this point, who gave him the vehicle or who gave him the keys, that's unclear," he said.
Either way, he shouldn't have been driving. He did not have a learner's permit, which would have allowed him to drive legally at 15 if he had a parent or legal guardian in the front seat.
Wallace Wintle, with the Drivers License Division, said, "It requires some experience to be a safe driver. We have found throughout the years as we've tested the young drivers that was the one thing they were really lacking."
Tonight, the strained Saratoga Springs neighborhood deals with a tragedy that affects almost everyone on Wagoneer Road. Neighbor Kate Brighton put it well when she said, "It should not have happened, it should never have happened."
The Utah County Attorney's Office is screening the case but, as of tonight, no citations have been issued and no charges have been filed.

Another Cut and Paste

Sheriff's sergeant dies during traffic stop
August 14th, 2008 @ 4:59pm
By Randall Jeppesen
A Wasatch County sheriff's sergeant is dead after he collapsed during a traffic stop.
In Provo Canyon, just below the Deer Creek dam, Sgt. G. Scott Hathcock was pulling over Grace Waitt for speeding. She says everything appeared normal as he asked for her license and registration.

"I was looking for my registration, and when I turned around, he had collapsed onto the ground," Waitt said.
Other drivers, like Mark Shaw, pulled over when they saw something was wrong. Soon after, Hathcock stopped breathing, and they started CPR.
"We tried with what equipment that we had, you know, tried to work on him," Shaw said.
A medical team later pronounced Hathcock dead at the scene. The medical examiner will have to determine if it was a heart attack or something else that killed the 48-year-old sergeant.
Hathcock had no known medical condition that could explain his sudden death, his supervisor said. "He was one of the two or three in our office you'd least expect to have problems," sheriff's Capt. John Rogers said.
Hathcock, of Heber City, had been a full-time Wasatch County deputy since April 2007. He was retired from the Utah Highway Patrol, where he worked for more than 20 years.
"Sgt. Hathcock was the ultimate professional and was respected by all who worked with him," Sheriff Ken Van Wagoner in a statement. "He will be greatly missed."
Rogers said the motorist won't be ticketed for speeding. "We'll be sending her a letter thanking her for her efforts," he said.
A trust fund for Sgt. Hathcock's family has been set up in his name at Zions Bank. Contributions may be made at any Zions Bank office.
