On the heels of deadly San Diego car accident that took the lives of two people, including a former Marine, California Highway Patrol are now investigating a pedestrian accident involving an adult and child in Borrego Springs.
It happened Tuesday evening. Details of the accident are unclear, however officials say the victims were on foot when they were struck by a car. The victims were flown to area hospitals with injuries. The driver of the car allegedly stayed at the scene until officers arrived.
Pedestrian accidents killed more than 4-thousand people each year, and injure 70-thousand more. Unfortunately, research conducted on hospital records shows that only a fraction of pedestrian accidents that cause injury are reported to police.
