A 7-year-old child was hospitalized with serious leg injuries in a San Diego car accident, which officials say, was caused by a driver who ran a red light. According to a 10News report, the injury car accident occurred at the intersection of Fairmount and Home avenues in the Ridgeview area of San Diego the night of November 23, 2010. The child was a passenger in a Nissan Altima, which had the green light as it entered the intersection.
At the time, the driver of a 1995 Lincoln Mark VIII ran a red light and crashed into the Nissan. Officials say it is possible that the Lincoln lost its brakes prior to the car accident. Two other people in the Altima and two in the Lincoln also sustained injuries that have been described as minor. Police say alcohol was not a factor. No citations have been issued pending an official investigation.
