Woman Injured and Dog Killed in Torrance Pedestrian Crash

 
TORRANCE, CA (October 9, 2019) – A woman suffered injuries and her dog died in a hit-and-run pedestrian crash on Vermont Avenue.
 
The incident occurred on October 7 while Diane Castillo walked her two dogs about 5:30 a.m as she tried to cross Vermont Avenue.
 
“I got hit right here, and right here, you can tell it’s swollen on the inside,” Diane Castillo said.
 
She received treatment for fractured ribs and other injuries. However, Daisy, her dog, died.
 
“I’m still at a loss for words. It hasn’t hit me yet,” Castillo added.
 
As Castillo’s dogs stood in the bike lane, a vehicle drove at a high speed in her direction.
 
“All I seen was something coming towards me… It hit me. I fell to the ground around here. I was injured, but it wasn’t my concern,” said Castillo.
 
Meanwhile, Cleo, the woman’s other dog, survived the collision.
 
Castillo’s other dog, Cleo, survived the crash.
 
“Why didn’t you be a man or be a woman and stop? There’s too much of this going on right now… too much,” Castillo added.
 
According to her, the hit-and-run vehicle was a white pickup.
 
The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic collisions. If you are a pedestrian, bicyclist or driver, pay close attention to the those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near.
