  1. Very sad, almost happened to my wife and I in a crosswalk.

    I hope the police confiscated her cell phone.

  2. Very sad situation, but Alhambra still continues suffering too many vehicular accidents, particularly hit and run; although in this situation the driver did what she had to do and I’m also sorry for her (the driver). A comment by Joesph S reads that drivers need to “slow down, pay attention”, I fully agree, but pedestrians also need to pay attention when crossing a street, think DEFENSIVELY (assume cars do not see them, assume cars will not stop for them, don’t walk off the sidewalk without looking all ways – forward, both sides,back).My condolences to the family and friends of the victim.

  3. Very sad to hear about this. My GUESS is that the driver was probably driving too fast or not paying attention.

    Regardless, if people would just slow down, pay attention and realize that they are indeed driving a very powerful weapon, maybe this can be prevented.

Stay Informed.
