4-Year-Old Girl Dies in Los Angeles Pedestrian Crash at Olympic Boulevard
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 17, 2019) — A four-year-old girl lost her life following a pedestrian crash at Olympic Boulevard and Normandie Avenue Wednesday morning.
According to the Los Angeles police, the collision occurred at around 7:45 a.m. A mother drove an SUV with three of her own children inside the vehicle. She attempted to make a left turn from Normandie Avenue onto Olympic Boulevard. It was then that she struck a mother and daughter on a crosswalk.
First responders took the woman and the four-year-old girl to hospitals for treatment. However, the girl died at the Children’s Hospital. She was a student at the Mariposa-Nabi Primary Center, located one block away from the scene of the accident.
On the other hand, the woman driving the SUV remained at the scene. The officers said she was distraught over what happened.
It was not immediately clear whether the traffic light was red at the time of the collision. However, further investigation is underway. The L.A. School Police Department is also assisting the LAPD in the case. They sent crisis response personnel to the Mariposa-Nabi Primary Center.
Meantime, the volunteers at the girl’s school questioned why there was no crossing guard assigned at the intersection.
