PROVO, Utah - A Utah man is in custody after allegedly running into a woman who was pushing a child in a cart outside a store.

Officers say 66-year-old Carl Anderson sped through the crosswalk at a Sam's Club, hitting a 61-year-old grandmother who was pushing a child in a cart.

Miraculously, witnesses say the car didn't hit the child at all.

Provo officers told KSTU that after hitting the victim, Anderson got out of his SUV to check for damage before trying to drive away.

However, witnesses held him until officers arrived.

"They didn't use any physical force or restrain him," said Officer Brandon Post, with the Provo Police Department. "They just stopped him from leaving by placing themselves between him and the vehicle or standing in a place so the vehicle couldn't leave."

The 61-year-old woman went to the hospital with a separated shoulder, severe neck pain, bruising to her hip and other minor injuries.

The store's surveillance cameras captured the crash.

Anderson was arrested for DUI with serious bodily injury, operating a vehicle without insurance and revoked registration.
