According to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, a group of employees was evaluating damage to a canal lining from potential flooding around 9:30 a.m. along Powerhouse Road.

One of them tried to cross the road near 2100 East but did not make sure traffic was clear, officials said. The employee was hit by a southbound Ford Ranger and sustained serious head and leg injuries.

An Intermountain LifeFlight helicopter responded and brought him to the Utah Valley Hospital.
