A Riverton man has died of the injuries he suffered when he was struck by a car in a church parking lot almost a week ago.
89-year-old Martin Vala had been in critical condition since the accident last Tuesday morning, when a woman struck him and another man as the two stood talking in the parking lot of St. James Church. The second man suffered minor injuries, but Vala died early Monday morning.
The woman told police that she was blinded by the morning sun and didn't see the men. No charges were immediately filed... but a statement from the coroner's office says the accident remains under investigation.
