Incident: Felony Hit & Run
Report #: #13-091306
Date: Thursday, 9/26/2013
Time: 6:37 PM
Location: E. Market St. & Center St.
A 34 year-old woman, was with her two young daughters crossing E. Market St. at the intersection with Center St. They were walking northbound and had almost reached the other side when a white Honda approached them traveling westbound. The vehicle, driven by a female driver, struck the 6 year-old girl, causing her to bounce off the hood. The vehicle did not slow down and continued traveling westbound on E. Market St. The victim sustained a very large bump over her left eye and several scrapes throughout her upper body. She was flown to a Bay Area trauma center for treatment. At this time, there is no additional suspect or vehicle description. The pedestrians were in the crosswalk at the time of the collision and it appears the driver never slowed down. Drivers are reminded to remain alert for pedestrians and free of distractions in the roadway at all times. Also, if anyone was a witness to this incident, they are asked to call the Salinas Police Department.
