Summit County Sheriff Deputies are seeking a hit-and-run driver who drove through a construction zone last week and knocked down a worker.

An incident report said officers responded to a call on Thursday, the 28th, shortly before 4:00 pm to the Blackstone Drive area, located between White Pine Canyon Road and the Canyons Resort.

Witnesses said the driver of a newer-model black Range Rover became upset driving through the construction, and made threats. The man knocked down a worker who was standing next to his vehicle, and fled.

The worker was checked by medical at the scene and released.

Deputies circulated in the area but didn’t find the vehicle. Witnesses didn’t see a license plate, but said the driver was a white male, about 70, with white hair and wearing glasses.
