Mother, Kids On Bike Struck By Vehicle In Vallejo Crosswalk
VALLEJO (KCBS) – A mother and her two young daughters were injured Wednesday morning while she was riding a bicycle with an attached trailer and they were hit by a car in Vallejo.
Vallejo fire officials said the incident took place at Elliott and Mini Drives, a few blocks from State Route 29, around 7:45 a.m.
All three were injured in the collision. There was a stop sign but no traffic light at the intersection. Firefighters had to cut and dismantle half the trailer to free the children and it’s not clear if there were child restraints.
A Vallejo fire dispatcher said the two-year-old girl was taken by helicopter to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento in serious condition. The woman and her five-year-old daughter were taken to Sutter Solano Medical Center in Vallejo, both suffering from moderate injuries.
Fire officials said the driver of the car stayed at the scene.
