5-Year-Old Boy Struck By a Car in Pacifica Sustains Major Injuries

A 5-year-old Pacifica boy is in the hospital with major injuries after being hit by a car last Friday afternoon, police said.

At approximately 12:30 p.m. officers to a report that a vehicle had struck a pedestrian in the 1100 block of Rosita Road.

Upon arrival, officers located the boy in the roadway who had been struck by a vehicle. The child was transported to a nearby hospital with major injuries not considered life-threatening, according to police.

The preliminary investigation into the incident indicates that the child entered the roadway between parked vehicles, not a crosswalk, police said.

The speed of the vehicle does not appear to be a factor in this incident, according to police.

The investigation into this collision is continuing and is being conducted by traffic collision investigators from the Pacifica Police Department CRASH Team. 

Patch will update this story when more information is made available.

This is a somewhat blind corner and folks drive far too fast on Rosita as a rule. Please drive very carefully out there folks! Remember that these are residential streets and children do unexpected things! A little patience goes a long way.

My daughter lives on that block and just 2 weeks ago, her roommate's beautiful cat got run over and killed. I think maybe some extra speed bumps are in order...

Regardless if speed was a factor or not, I hope something is done about the reckless raceway on Rosita. People near Adobe must have stock in side view mirror manufacturers... I have seen so many clips and close calls... I have a 9 year old son and a block down from where this happened. Even at 9, it's hard for me to even let him ride his bike around the block, I've had too many close calls as both a pedestrian and a driver. I truly wish they would do something about the speeding on this street, way too many blind turns, and too many kid! PLEASE slow down. Save a life and leave a minute earlier. Poor little guy, sure hope he is okay - and his family too! Would love an update.
