A 70-year-old female pedestrian was struck in Solvang on Thursday. The woman was walking across a crosswalk at the Mission Drive and Fourth Place intersection when she was struck by an oncoming vehicle. The man driving the vehicle was confirmed to be an elderly man from Solvang as well.
Per The Santa Maria Times, she landed 10 to 12 feet from the point of impact and suffered what appeared to be serious injuries. The elderly driver remained at the scene for questioning, and confirmed the sun was blocking his vision causing him to accidentally hit her. The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers have the woman in our prayers in hopes of a full recovery.
