A Modesto sixth grader who was volunteering as a crossing guard sustained injuries on Tuesday morning when she was struck by a car in a crosswalk. The Modesto pedestrian accident occurred at approximately 8:30 a.m. while the girl was helping students cross Orangeburg Avenue on their way to Fremont Elementary School. The light for pedestrian traffic was green when a car traveling south on Tully Road attempted to turn east on Orangeburg Avenue and struck the girl, who was transported to a local hospital for evaluation of her injuries.

California Highway Patrol records indicate that 14,047 pedestrians were injured by motorists in California in 2008. The injuries are often serious, and sometimes deadly, because of the force that a vehicle imparts to an exposed body.
