15-Year-Old Hospitalized in Porterville Pedestrian Crash

 
PORTERVILLE, CA (December 6, 2019) — A driver struck and seriously injured a 15-year-old jogger in a pedestrian accident on Mathew Street near Pioneer Avenue Wednesday evening.
 
The incident happened in the 1500 block of North Mathew Street around 10:00 p.m. Officers responded to calls and arrived shortly thereafter to find a 15-year-old who’d been struck by a 2017 Honda Civic.
 
The unidentified teenager was brought to Kaweah Delta Medical Center and then to Valley Children’s Hospital, where medical staff listed him in critical but stable condition.
 
Meanwhile, the unidentified driver stayed and cooperated with police investigations. Police learned that the Honda driver was traveling at speeds of 20 to 30 miles per hour at the time.
 
Investigators do not believe impairment played a role but are exploring other outstanding factors that could have led to the accident.
 
Police did not release any additional information at this time. Anyone with insight into this crash should contact Sergeant Jordan or Officer Wilkinson at 559-782-7400.
 
Understanding the basics of safe driving and applying them will make a difference in your safety. Always keep your isolated attention on driving. Slow down, for speeding gives you less time and road clearance to react to an unforeseen incident ahead. Lastly, keep a three-second cushion from the driver ahead of you; this will also render you more time to react.
