Santa Monica Police and Fire Department responded to reports of a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision at the intersection of 4th and Washington
An ambulance took one victim away from a car crash after one car failed to stop at the intersection of 4th and Washington, colliding with a pedestrian in the crosswalk.
On Sunday, December 23, at approximately 8 pm, the Santa Monica Police and Fire Department responded to reports of a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision at the intersection of 4th and Washington.
Upon the arrival of police and fire, the patient was unconscious and was actively vomiting. The patient was being treated until the ambulance arrived to transport her to an area hospital for further treatment.
According to police officers and witnesses, the driver did not stop entirely even though other vehicles were at the 4-way intersection and were about to go. The driver struck the pedestrian crossing in an unmarked crosswalk at the intersection.
The police department conducted a significant injury accident investigation and did not call out their investigation team. Westbound and Eastbound traffic was closed on Washington until the investigation was completed.
The patient is expected to make a full recovery. It is believed that drugs or alcohol were not to be a factor in the accident. We have contacted Santa Monica Police and Fire for further comment and await hearing back.
