On Tuesday, April 12, 2016, three pedestrians were hit in a truck collision, in Porterville. The Tulare County vehicle accident took place at Main Street and Vine Avenue, at around 8:05 PM.
Michael Cribbs, 49 years old, was driving his pickup truck southbound on Main Street.
At that time a group of pedestrians; which included Alma Martinez, 31, Maria Martinez, 60, and a 10 year old girl, were walking across Main Street, at Vine Avenue. They were crossing in a marked crosswalk, when Cribbs crashed into them, near the westside curb.
Alma Martinez, pushed a stroller with a three year old in it, out of the way in time to save the child.
Martinez suffered major injuries and was taken to a local hospital.
Maria Martinez and the girl sustained minor injuries and have since been released from the hospital.
