Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r On January 16, 2017 at 6:58 PM first responders from the Spanish Fork City Department of Public Safety were dispatched to 720 North Main Street on a report of an auto/pedestrian traffic accident. It was reported a vehicle traveling northbound on Main Street struck a pedestrian who was crossing Main Street at the intersection of 700 North.

Upon arrival first responders observed a male individual in the northbound travel lane. The male pedestrian was unresponsive although he was breathing and had a pulse. The pedestrian was attempting to cross Main Street at the intersection of 700 North and was struck by a vehicle traveling northbound on Main Street. The pedestrian was crossing eastbound when he was struck. 700 North is an uncontrolled intersection and a painted crosswalk is not present.

The pedestrian was identified as a 95 year old Spanish Fork resident Ralph H. Andrus, Spanish Fork resident. His name will be released later this afternoon after family members have been notified. The pedestrian was transported to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center by ground ambulance. The pedestrian later passed away at the hospital due to injuries sustained in the accident. The driver of the vehicle is a 26 year old male from Spanish Fork and he was driving a 2006 Volkswagen passenger car.

The pedestrian was wearing dark colored clothing and it appears the driver of the vehicle did not see him as he was attempting to cross the street. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a contributing factor in the accident. The incident will be reviewed by the Spanish Fork City Attorney’s Office for any criminal charges if necessary.

Questions may be directed to Lieutenant Matt Johnson at 801-921- 9914.
