California AA Accident Attorneys

Police are on the lookout for a driver who ran a red light and struck a 9 year old girl in a crosswalk before fleeing the scene Wednesday afternoon in Orange.

According to Orange police Lt. Patrick Thayer, the girl and her 10 year old brother were walking across the street at the intersection of West Collins Avenue and North Glassell Street just after 2:30 p.m. when she was struck.

The two were standing at the northwest corner of the intersection waiting for the light to change to allow them to walk southbound through the crosswalk when a car ran through a red light and made contact with the girl about five feet from the curb and drove off. Her brother was not hit.

Paramedics were immediately called to the scene by witnesses, and she was taken to nearby UCI Medical Center for treatment of bruises on the side of her face. Fortunately, her injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

Witnesses reported that the driver who struck the girl briefly stopped about 100 yards west of the intersection, but soon continued on down West Collins Avenue.

Police have launched a full investigation into the accident in hopes of catching the hit and run driver as quickly as possible. “I hope they catch this idiot. How do you hit a kid and take off? Throw the book at them!” exclaimed one angered witness.

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a dark sedan with damage and a broken window on its passenger side as a result of the accident. No description of the driver has been released. Anyone with additional information about the accident or the whereabouts of the driver is being asked to notify Orange Police Department investigators as soon as possible.

Crosswalks and stop lights are designed to allow a safe interaction between cars and pedestrians on the road. As a driver it is your responsibility to watch for anyone attempting to make their way across the street, adult or child, and to adhere to the color of stop lights.
