A hit and run crash in the City of Industry
Happened in a blink of an eye, a grandmother and her granddaughter were crossing the street Wednesday the 28th of September 2022, when they were struck by a car that didn't stop but sped off. They get off of a bus before waiting for the signal to walk across the street.
The grandmother and granddaughter amazingly escaped serious injuries. They sustained minor injuries in the collision in the form of cuts and bruises. They were taken to a hospital, treated, and released.
Fabian Barajas' residential security camera from across the street, caught the crime. His security camera was pointed at the intersection for the last four years and captured all kinds of wrecks and traffic violations.
"I was shocked obviously. I was like, 'Whoa, how can you just take off and leave them there?'" said Fabian Barajas.
"Accidents, speeding cars constantly," he told Eyewitness News. "This is up and down speeding. There's no control of that."
The video shows a silver Honda Accord driving through a red light at the intersection of Azusa Avenue and Gemini Street, then plowing into the two pedestrians and speeding away, sending both flying and leaving the pair in the street.
A suspected driver was arrested by the authorities on Thursday the 29th of September 2022. He was booked at the Industry Sheriff's Station without releasing his name.
