Two Kids Airlifted after Being Hit by Car near Arizola Road
CASA GRANDE, AZ (October 29, 2019) – Two girls suffered injuries after they were hit by a car near Arizola Road, Tuesday morning.
According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened at about 7:00 AM. Two sisters, ages 6 and 7, had been waiting for a school bus when their friend yelled to them that the bus was coming. They immediately ran into the roadway without yielding to traffic.
Then, a small sedan struck the sisters near Jimmie Kerr Boulevard. The driver of the sedan, a 19-year-old woman, was taking her brother to school at the time.
Emergency responders airlifted the victims to Phoenix Children’s hospital for treatment. The 6-year-old victim is in critical condition, while the 7-year-old is in stable condition.
The sedan driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Officers ruled out speed, impairment, and distraction as factors in the collision. Authorities will release additional information once it becomes available.
It is important to always be alert when behind the wheel of a car, truck, or bus. Stay within the speed limit, and follow the rules of the road to prevent any dangerous accidents. Always keep an eye out for pedestrians, especially near school zones.
