Young Santa Rosa Girl Struck By Car, Critically Injured

By Kelly Balamuth on March 10, 2015

A 6-year-old girl was severely injured after a vehicle hit her as she was crossing the street with her family in Santa Rosa Sunday night around 9:20 p.m. The girl was walking east across Petaluma Hill Road at Breeze Way in a marked crosswalk when struck by a 67-year-old Santa Rosa man driving a 2001 Ford Focus.

The driver immediately pulled over and is cooperating with police. At this time, it is unclear what caused the accident.

The vast majority of fatal pedestrian/motor vehicle collisions occur on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in later evening hours. Unfortunately, based on population, children under the age of 16 are more likely to be struck by motor vehicles. Pedestrian accidents leave their victims in terrible pain and often with permanent physical disabilities.

If you or a loved one has been injured while using a crosswalk, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. In a personal injury claim involving a child, under the California law “Minor’s Compromise,” a judge is required to conduct a hearing to determine if the terms of the settlement are in the child’s best interest. If the settlement is approved, all net proceeds will be held in a blocked bank account that can only be accessed by the child when he or she turns 18.
