A Riverside car accident resulted in major injuries for a child who was riding a scooter the afternoon of October 4, 2010. The Southwest Riverside News Network reports that the hit-and-run car accident occurred at the intersection of Garden Grove Avenue and Huerta Way in Norco, when a brown minivan struck the child and then fled the scene of the car accident. The child was transported to a regional hospital for treatment of critical injuries. The female suspect was last seen driving on Temescal Avenue. Officials are looking for more information about this pedestrian accident and the hit-and-run driver.
I certainly hope the young victim has not sustained catastrophic injuries in this hit-and-run car accident. I hope and pray that the child recovers quickly and completely from the injuries he or she has sustained.
Hit-and-Run Statistics and Law
According to California Highway Patrol’s traffic accident statistics, there were 17,158 hit-and-run car accidents that resulted in fatalities or injuries in California in 2008. A majority of these car accidents involved injuries. There were a total of 247 deaths in 2008 involving hit-and-runs statewide. California Vehicle Code Section 20001 (a) states: “The driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in injury to a person, other than himself or herself, or in the death of a person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident.”
Making a Difference
Hit-and-run drivers make my blood boil. This incident, particularly, involved a young child riding his or her scooter in what seems to be a residential neighborhood. This driver hit and critically injured the child and left the victim lying on the roadway. She did not even stop to help or see what happened. This is an egregious and irresponsible act that must be appropriately punished.
