Fatal Accident in Santa Ana

A fatal Santa Ana car accident killed a young girl and seriously injured a young boy.

The fatal accident took place on North Bristol near West 10th Street. A group of seven children and an adult were crossing the street at around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday. The group was walking from the west to east side. A vehicle, traveling northbound, struck the group of children. The drivers remained at the scene and cooperated with the officers.

Police believe that the young girl, an 11 year old, was thrown into an adjacent lane by the impact of the collision. She was then struck by a second vehicle.  The other victim, an 8 year old boy, may have been struck by the sides of both vehicles. After the impact, the girl was not breathing. There was also no pulse when paramedics treated her at the scene.  Firefighters also reported to the scene. The firefighter performed CPR on the little girl and then transported her to the hospital.

Both victims were taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange. The little girl was pronounced dead at the hospital. The little boy is still in critical condition. The two victims were brother and sister. It is unclear what the victims’ relationship was to the other members of the group.

The group was not walking in a marked crosswalk. There was no designated walking area in that area. Investigators are still trying to determine if the pedestrian or the vehicles had right of way. Police do not believe that drugs or alcohol was a factor in this collision. No arrests have been made. The investigation is still ongoing.

This is a very unfortunate accident. The victims were young and innocent. This is an example of the dangers of jaywalking. The group was attempting to cross at night. They probably were not very visible. If they had crossed in a designated cross walk, this collision may never have happened.

Jaywalking is very dangerous. Every time you jaywalk, you are risking not only your life, but the lives of other people on the road. The time you save by illegally crossing the street is not worth your safety. Don’t cross the street until unless there is a marked cross walk and wait for your turn.

If you are ever in a car accident, contact a Santa Ana car accident lawyer. Car accidents are often quite traumatic. There are physical and emotional injuries. These injuries can also be quite expensive to take care of. A car accident lawyer can help you seek maximum damages for your losses.

Every pedestrian should be aware of pedestrian safety rules. Pedestrian injuries are a leading cause of death for children. When a car strikes a pedestrian, these accidents are often serious if not fatal. A pedestrian has nothing to absorb the blunt force of a collision.

To protect yourself while walking, it is important to stay alert. You should focus on the street and the road. Make sure you stay on the sidewalk and cross in the marked cross walk. Follow traffic signals and crosswalks. Before you cross a street, you should always look left and right because crossing the street. It is a good habit to make eye contact with a driver before crossing in front of them. Pay special attention to cars that are turning.
