A local man was seriously injured after being struck by a car at 5:15 p.m. on Christmas Eve in Farmington.
Farmington Police Lt. Chris Bullock said Edward L. Halpin, 61, was struck by a driver traveling east in a 2015 Toyota Camry on Karsch Boulevard at Maple Valley Drive. The pedestrian was struck as the motorist passed through the intersection.
“He was struck as he was crossing the roadway from the median back to the southeastern side,” Bullock said.
Bullock said Halpin was seriously injured. He could not be airlifted due to the weather.
“He was taken to St. Anthony’s, I believe, by ambulance,” said Bullock. “His injuries were serious enough to try and fly him and take him to the city.”
Bullock said the driver of the car was Susan Nabors, 57, of Farmington and there are no charges at this time.
“There were also witnesses who observed Halpin walk out in front of the car,” said Bullock. “Halpin’s vehicle had broken down and was stalled in the area.”
Halpin’s niece, Missy Skaggs, posted an update on his condition on Facebook and she said he had multiple face fractures. He has two broken legs, neck, back, shoulders, and pelvis area. She also posted that he had surgery to repair some of the damage and that there is no paralysis.
