A vehicle struck a pedestrian at the intersection of McBean Parkway and Town Center Drive in Valencia Sunday afternoon, officials said.

A 38-year-old female was struck by a 16-year-old female driver while she was turning from Town Center Drive onto McBean Parkway.

The pedestrian was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital.

It is unknown whether the driver will be charged for anything as of 5:38 p.m.

“There’s really no charge for striking a pedestrian unless you do it maliciously,” said Lt. Rob Hahnlein of the SCV Sheriff’s Station.

The collision was reported at 4:35 p.m.

The incident happened at the same crosswalk as a previously reported vehicle versus pedestrian collision on Sept. 10.

    How about sending the 16 year old female back to driving school. Obviously she missed the part about NOT striking pedestrians.

    How do we know the 16 year old was not texting on her cell phone when this happened, or even talking on her cell phone when she hit the person; both are illegal: in which the driver if caught can be cited along with the cost of courts fees the would have to paid by the driver for committing the offence, so why would the cops say that there no charges, did the cops ever ask the driver if she had been texting on her cell phone or talking on her cell phone; even if they did the driver probably lied about to avoid getting a citation; or did the driver run the red light knowing that the person crossing the street had the right away
