10-Year-Old Child Hit by Car in Front Yard of Home
COLTON (June 13, 2017)- According to the Press-Enterprise, a child was seriously hurt after being struck by an out of control driver Tuesday evening.
The incident occurred right around 6:30 p.m. at the 1000 block of North La Cadena Drive.
Witnesses say that the driver of a blue Honda for unknown reasons lost control and veered off the road directly into the front yard of a home before crashing into the residence hitting a 10-year-old child in the process.
The child whose name and gender remains undisclosed suffered serious injuries but was fortunately in stable condition as of Wednesday morning, the article confirmed.
The driver of the Honda who has not been identified was also injured and transported to a hospital for their injuries.
The collision left serious damage to the home leaving a large hole at the front of the home near the porch.
Police officials believe that speed was definitely a factor and are looking into whether other factors may have been a contributor.
Based on this news report, the out of control driver who struck the child will be held liable for this accident. There are still several unanswered questions here. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why. In this incident where there are obvious negligence and wrongdoing, the family of the injured 10-year-old may file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver on behalf of their child seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses and pain and suffering.
