Vista Pedestrian Accident Seriously Injures 7-Year Old Girl

By Ross Jurewitz on July 5, 2011

A 7-year-old girl was hurt in a serious car accident that occurred on July 1‚ 2011‚ around 9 p.m. at the Vista intersection of Waxwing Drive and North Avenue‚ near North Melrose Drive. According to Sheriff’s Deputy Kenneth Werner‚ the girl was struck by a white Ford Expedition driven by an 18-year-old woman.

The injured girl was immediately airlifted to Rady Children’s Hospital to receive medical treatment for the injuries suffered. From the available information‚ it is unclear what made the teen driver hit the young girl. Usually when vehicles are involved in pedestrian accidents‚ one suspects speeding or negligence to be a contributing factor. In this case‚ the investigating officers will need to determine whether the SUV driver was speeding‚ driving recklessly‚ driving under the influence of drugs‚ or did violated a traffic regulation.

If it is found that the teenage driver was at fault‚ then she might be held liable for the injuries suffered by the victim. The injured child’s parents should immediately seek counsel from an experienced Vista accident lawyer to learn about their legal rights and options.

An experienced North County car crash lawyer would assure that the family gets timely Car Bookcompensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ and that the at-fault party is brought to justice.

Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes and prays that the injuries suffered by the child heal soon.
