ST. GEORGE – St. George Police may release the name of the driver who is suspected of hitting Marva Cutler last week on Little Valley Road.
Capt. Kyle Whitehead said it will be weeks or months before the investigation is wrapped up, but he will soon be ready to release the name of the suspect. He did confirm the suspect is a female.
Whitehead said police withheld the name because they did not want to compromise the investigation. He said the driver claimed she had a “medical issue” when she ran off the road and hit Cutler.
He added that the police department has ordered records to help in their investigation, and that it could take weeks or months to get the results. He would not confirm what kind of records.
Cutler was found by a passerby at approximately 3100 S Little Valley Road Tuesday morning just before 8 a.m. lying on the road after going for a morning jog. Cutler was on the west side of the road and the vehicle was driving on the east of the road heading northbound, when the driver apparently crossed the center and hit Cutler.
Sgt. Craig Harding told St. George News yesterday that Cutler was still in critical condition, but that she was improving.
A fund at Mountain America Credit Union and Zions Bank has been established in Marva Cutler’s name.
