Casa Grande, AZ – Pedestrian Crash at Arizola Rd and Jimmie Kerr Blvd
Casa Grande, AZ (October 29, 2019) – Around 7 a.m. this morning, a pedestrian crash took place at the intersection of Arizona Road and Jimmie Kerr Boulevard in Casa Grande.
The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office claims that two young girls were waiting for the school when they were struck by a passenger vehicle.
Witnesses told police that a friend yelled that the bus was approaching so the girls ran into traffic. They were then struck by a sedan being driven by a 19-year-old woman taking her brother to school.
The victims were identified as 6 and 7-year-old girls who were immediately flown to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital with serious injuries. Though the 7-year-old is now in stable condition, the 6-year-old is still in critical condition.
The driver who struck the children remained at the scene.
No further information has been released but the investigation continues at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
