One Hurt in San Francisco Pedestrian Accident
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (April 29, 2019) – A pedestrian sustained injuries after car crash in San Francisco on Friday, April 26.
According to the police, the accident took place near the intersection of Claredon Avenue and Dellbrook Avenue at about 9:50 a.m.
A blue Mercedes and a white American Red Cross vehicle were involved in the accident.
Miles Dittman, the driver of the blue Mercedes, said that the collision caused a stroller with a child inside to be knocked over. Dittman added that he is training to be a firefighter.
Dittman said that he struck the front side of the stroller. After that, he went out of the passenger door, because that’s the side where the baby was. Then he picked the baby lying on the ground and made sure its limbs were okay. He then carried the baby over to the mother and then they called 911.
Paramedics transported the mother and baby girl to a hospital for a medical evaluation. They sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Both drivers stayed on the scene and cooperated with the investigation.
