Pedestrian Accident on Citrus Avenue Left Two Teenagers Hospitalized

REDLANDS, CA (January 5, 2022) – Two teenage girls sustained injuries after a pedestrian accident on Citrus Avenue Wednesday morning.

The incident took place around 7:30 a.m., near the intersection of Citrus Avenue and Church Street. Emergency crews responded to the scene shortly after.

According to reports, two high school juniors were walking in the street when the driver of a Toyota pickup-truck struck them.

As per initial investigations, the driver tried to make a left turn onto Citrus. According to the male driver, he failed to see the girls crossing because of windshield fog and the bright sun.

Responding medics treated the girls at the scene before later transporting them to a local hospital for treatment.

At this time, officials withheld the names of all parties involved. However, the driver remained and cooperated with the authorities.

Redlands police ruled out drugs, alcohol or intoxication as factors in the collision. But an active investigation is underway.
