March 17, 2014- A car crash involving two teenage pedestrians happened in Hanford, west of Visalia, on Monday. The accident happened at about 7:38 AM.
The students were crossing the street, at the marked crosswalk, near Hanford High School, on Grangeville Boulevard. They were headed to school, when a minivan, driven by a 51 year old Laton woman, hit them. The driver claimed she could not see the girls, because of the glare from the sun.
Officers reported that the woman was driving with a suspended license.
The girls were hurt, and taken to Adventist Medical Center. Their injuries are reported to not be serious.
