A mother and her 10-year-old daughter were struck by a car while lawfully crossing the street in a designated crosswalk. The accident occurred on May 20, 2012 at approximately 7:10 p.m. The victims were struck by an Audi sedan that was travelling westbound on Grand Avenue in South San Francisco, California.
According to published reports, the driver was a 26-year-old San Bruno woman who reportedly told investigators that she did not see the victims because
of glare from the setting sun. Drivers have a responsibility to adjust their speed in accordance with changes in visibility.
The victims were
transported from the scene to San Francisco General Hospital. The girl
suffered a broken arm and her mother was treated for minor injuries.
