Two Boys Hurt after Watsonville Pedestrian Collision on Walker Street
WATSONVILLE, CA (December 14, 2019) —Two boys suffered serious injuries after a pedestrian accident on Walker Street on Tuesday, December 10.
According to Watsonville Police Sgt. Donny Thul, the boys, ages 11 and 12, used a crosswalk to cross Walker Street from east to west at West Lake Avenue at 7:35 a.m.
A 39-year-old Watsonville woman, driving a Toyota minivan, failed to see the boys. Then she crashed into them as she drove south on Walker Street, said Thul.
Watsonville Fire personnel gave medical treatments to the victims at the scene. Then American Medical Response paramedics transported them to one landing pad at Watsonville Community Hospital, the other at Watsonville Municipal Airport. After that, paramedics airlifted both to out-of-county trauma centers by CALSTAR air ambulances.
Thul stated that they expect both to survive the ordeal.
Authorities said that drugs or alcohol did not appear to play a role in the collision. The investigation is still ongoing, Thul said.
