A young woman was struck by a vehicle while crossing State Street near the Utah Children's Theatre at 3605 South ("Pedestrian critically injured in South Salt Lake accident," Tribune, March 3).
She was not in a crosswalk. Unfortunately, there are no crosswalks on State Street between 3300 South and 3900 South. If this woman had wanted to cross in a walk, she would have had to walk three long blocks north or south.
When the theater moved to this location, the lack of a crosswalk was brought to the attention of the Utah Department of Transportation, with no response.
