A vehicle struck a seventh grade Rosemont student Wednesday morning as she crossed Rosemont Avenue to get to the middle school.

“The [girl] was not in a crosswalk,” said Officer Christian Cracraft, California Highway Patrol.

The girl’s mother was driving north on Rosemont Avenue when she stopped to drop her daughter off. The girl ran across the avenue just south of the driveway exit of the school. The driver of the car who hit her had just dropped her own child off using the school’s drop off lane in front of the school. She exited, turning right (south), onto Rosemont Avenue when the child crossed her path. She was driving at a slow speed, Cracraft said.

The Rosemont student was airlifted from Rosemont’s upper field to Children’s Hospital for observation.

“She is a sweet girl,” said Principal Cynthia Livingston of
the student. Livingston added that this incident emphasizes why it is so important for parents to drop their children off near a crosswalk or at the school.

“Use the drop off lane. Take the time, come early and use our drop off lane,” she urged.

Rosemont parents will be informed of the accident via the district’s Tell A Parent phone system.

The accident is under investigation.
