2 Months After Hit-and-Run, Kerri Cronk Returns to KSTU Anchor Desk Full-Time

Two months after sustaining a broken neck, a dislocated shoulder and a concussion in a hit-and-run accident, KSTU anchor Kerri Cronk has returned to her full-time schedule at the station.

Cronk was riding her bicycle in August when she collided with a vehicle, which she recalls being white. Despite efforts from KSTU, the driver has not yet been found. “I’m disappointed, sure,” Cronk tells the Salt Lake Tribune. “But I’ve kind of come to terms with it. I’m not going to wallow.”

Cronk returned to her position as morning anchor at the Salt Lake City Fox-affiliate in late September. Beginning today, she will resume her full-time schedule, which also includes the 11 a.m. and noon newscasts. “If I make a mistake, I say, ‘Oh, it’s the concussion,’” Cronk joked.

KSTU Begs Viewers for Information on Hit-and-Run Involving Anchor Kerri Cronk

Earlier this month, KSTU anchor Kerri Cronk was the victim of a hit-and-run accident in Salt Lake City that left her with a broken neck. The driver of the vehicle that hit her while she rode her bike has still not been found — and now the station is pleading for information from viewers (watch the video, above).

“It’s very hard, I have to admit,” Cronk, who is moving along with her physical recovery, said in a recent interview. “Anger is a harsh word. I still have anger, I would like some closure.” Read more

KSTU’s Kerri Cronk Recovering from Hit-and-Run

Kerri Cronk, an anchor at KSTU in Salt Lake City, is recovering from serious injuries sustained in a hit-and-run accident over the weekend.

Cronk, who anchors the morning show at the Fox affiliate, was riding her bike around 6 p.m. Friday evening when a white car pulled out of a parking lot and into her path. Cronk said she had only seconds to react before her bike collided with the vehicle — which then sped away. “I vividly remember the back of that car, and smashing into the back of that car. That’s my last memory,” Cronk told the station in an interview (video above).

Cronk was found by Bill Hubbard, a resident who saw her on the side of the road and called 911. She is recovering from a slew of serious injuries, including a broken neck, a dislocated shoulder, a concussion and various cuts and bruises. Cronk was wearing a helmet — which she says likely saved her life.
