Adult, Child Hit by Car in Borrego Springs Pedestrian Accident

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.

Officials: Children at High Risk for Pedestrian Accidents in the Fall

San Diego Attorney Personal Injury Lawyer Steven EliaDid you know that the fall season is the most dangerous time of year for children? That’s because according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, children are at an increased risk for pedestrian accidents. Officials say the shorter daylight hours make it harder for drivers to spot children who are walking to school or waiting at a bus stop.

Adults are strongly encouraged to walk children to school, especially if they are younger than 10. Also, officials say all children who walk to school should be taught the basics of traffic safety, including crossing the street safely.

Kids who ride their bike to school must also be trained to bike safely, and must wear their helmets at all times.
