Shortly before 4:30 p.m. on Monday, September 26th, a father and his two children were struck and injured while crossing a Huntington Beach street. The pedestrian accident occurred at the intersection of Edwards Street and Central Park Drive when a driver turning left failed to stop for the group. The father, who was holding his 1-year-old infant, rolled over the vehicle’s hood, both sustaining minor injuries. The vehicle also collided with the man’s three-year-old, who was on a tricycle. They were transported to a local hospital for treatment. Authorities are investigating the accident, explains an Orange County injury attorney.
Huntington Beach accounted for 3 of the 41 fatalities and 60 of the 914 injuries suffered by pedestrians in Orange County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, there were 596 fatalities and 13,083 injuries suffered by pedestrians throughout the state.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the father and his two children who were injured yesterday a full recovery.
