I was driving down from the Riviera today and saw a bunch of squad cars and a camera crew. I stopped a safe distance away, and found out that a child had just been struck. According to a woman I talked to at the scene, the car was a Toyota Prius traveling East on Pedregosa. Thankfully, the child did not suffer any serious or life- threatening injuries. The woman said that she lives in the neighborhood with her family and sees cars speeding on this street all the time (often 'bottoming-out at the base of the steep hill). It was her opinion that there should be a stop sign at the intersection to avoid close-calls, and of course, unfortunate near tragedies as was the case today.
