Car Hits Student near School Grounds

Vehicles approaching school areas should slow down to avoid hitting the students and other pedestrians. On the other hand, students are also required to walk along a safe, designated areas such as crosswalks or pedestrian lanes, away from moving vehicles.

Police arrived at the scene of the accident where a 12-year old student was allegedly struck by a vehicle Toyota Corolla. The accident happened at 1500 W. Ball Road while the students were arriving at Ball Junior High School.

Initial reports showed that the girl sustained moderate trauma. Anaheim Fire paramedics treated her and she was then brought to a hospital.

It is the responsibility of both students and drivers to be careful. Vehicle accidents may happen if both drivers and students are negligent with their actions.
