October 17, 2011- A teenage girl was hit and killed by a car in Winton, north of Fresno, on Monday. The accident occurred at about 7:30 PM.
Monica Cazares, 13, was running northeast along Winton Way, south of Bridget Court, when she ran out into the road and was struck by a 2009 Nissan Altima, driven by Samantha Miller.
Miller tried to avoid hitting Cazares, by slamming on her brakes and turning her car to the right. But the right front of the car hit the girl. She was thrown northeast and landed along the curb, north of Bridget Court.
Cazares died at the scene of the crash. Miller and her 7 year-old passenger were not injured in the collision.
CHP reported that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
