An elk was injured on SR 224 in the early hours of Thursday morning, the first day of the Sundance Film Festival. Sheriff’s reports indicate it happened near St. Mary’s Catholic Church. The vehicle left the scene and did not report the collision. The animal was hurt badly and was euthanized by a Utah Highway Patrol officer.
Summit County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Andrew Wright says the dispatch log shows reports of an injured elk on SR 224 near the catholic church trying to cross the highway.
