A Colorado man was hit by a car in the Park City Mountain Resort parking lot on Sunday. On Monday night five vehicles were burglarized overnight on the 2700 block of Upper Iron Horse Drive.

A person was trying to save a parking spot for his friend a little before noon on Sunday. A Heber woman says she tried to get him to move and he wouldn’t and so she proceeded into the parking space. According to Park City Police Captain Phil Kirk the man claimed he had some minor pain, but he refused medical services.

“She felt like she tried to get the pedestrian to move out of the parking stall and when he wouldn't she just slowly pulled into that and her vehicle did have impact but she said she tried to get him to move out of the way, but he wouldn’t.”

No charges have been filed at this point. The police department referred it to the Summit county attorney’s office on possible reckless endangerment charges.

All but one of the five vehicle burglaries involved smashing windows and the taking of valuables. They don’t have a lot of details yet, but Kirk says all five vehicles had valuables taken.

“They discovered them primarily in the morning, the victims did.” They were again, four of the vehicles were actually like, windows were broken out and the cars were broken into. The other one I believe was unlocked and their valuables that were in the vehicles, assortment of valuables, we believe they were all cases that are all related 'cause of this location is time in the method that they got into vehicles. So, we’re encouraging people to use more precautions on not keeping valuables stored in their vehicles especially overnight. It's good that they were locked but even being locked, we believe that the valuables that were in the vehicles were visible.”

That’s public Information Officer Phil Kirk with the Park City Police Department.
