Like me, you might scream out loud when you see this video.
A mother was pushing her 4-year-old daughter in a stroller through a Scottsdale, AZ intersection on May 9. When the light turned green, they remained in the middle of the street. A black SUV apparently didn’t see them (they were partially obstructed by a large van) and hit the mother and rolled over the daughter:
When the mother, Regina Aldan, looked up after the incident, she thought her daughter, Perla, was dead. But miraculously, neither Regina nor Perla were seriously hurt. Here’s the video:
KSAZ-TV reports the driver will not face charges:
Based on witness accounts and laws that require drivers to yield to pedestrians, the driver was cited on scene. But after reviewing the video, the investigating officer has asked that the citation be dismissed.
Scottsdale Police determined that the SUV driver’s view was obscured and that it would’ve been nearly impossible for the SUV to yield to the family, who ran directly into the path of the vehicle.
