Possible Hit-and-Run Injures Student of Lodi Unified School District

 
LODI, CA (January 26, 2019) – A student of Lodi Unified School District was injured in a possible hit and run Tuesday afternoon.
 
According to Lodi police officer Brannon Haro, the student was walking eastward on West Century Boulevard across Scarborough Drive, heading to the parking lot of Century Assembly – a nearby church – where his mother was waiting for him.
 
The student said the car was going south across Scarborough Drive and passed in front of him, clipping his foot under the wheel. It was determined that the student was at a crosswalk when the incident occurred.
 
The student reportedly ran across the street to tell his mother what happened. His mother then took him to the hospital after he complained of pain but never notified law enforcement. Only a Facebook post made by the student’s mother made them aware of the situation. Haro said the student sustained minor injuries and had no broken bones.
 
The student described the vehicle as a gray or a silver compact sedan which was driven by a woman of Indian descent who was wearing a headscarf.
 
The absence of a license plate number or a more specific description of the driver makes it difficult for police to investigate the incident as per Haro. The police do not know if the driver was even aware of what happened.
 
Officials said no witnesses have come forward, and police received no calls for service from that area around the time when the incident occurred.
 
In a statement, Chelsea Vongehr, a spokeswoman for Lodi Unified School District, confirmed that an incident occurred Tuesday between a car and a student walking to Beckman Elementary School, and the student was injured. She said they are fully cooperating with the investigation led by the Lodi police and will continue to work with Beckman Elementary School students and staff on safety measures.
 
Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, it is important to abide by all traffic laws and observe safety precautions. If you’re behind the wheel, always watch out for pedestrians. Slow down, prepare to stop, and be extra careful especially when driving through an intersection, school zones, parks, or residential areas. If you’re a pedestrian, always walk on a sidewalk or a crosswalk. If the road doesn’t have sidewalks, walk on the shoulder and face oncoming traffic. This way, you and the motorists have a better chance of seeing one another and react if a situation arises.
