Mother, 2 children struck by 90-year-old driver in Fullerton
A 90-year-old woman driving a vehicle struck a mother and her two young children in a Fullerton crosswalk before ramming into a tree in an accident that left all four badly injured, police said Tuesday.
The mother was with her 6-year-old boy and 9-year-old girl near Rolling Hills Drive and Puente Street when they were hit, the Fullerton Police Department said.
The driver kept going for about another 100 yards before smashing into the tree.
The mother and her children were taken to hospitals with serious injuries that were not life-threatening, Sgt. Andrew Goodrich said. The driver was listed in critical condition at a local hospital.
“It’s all under investigation right now,” Goodrich told The Times. “We don’t believe there’s anything criminal.”
No other details were immediately available.
