Two pedestrians, one of which was a child, were injured and airlifted to the hospital Sunday afternoon after being hit by a car in Canyon Country.
Los Angeles County Fire Department officials responded to reports of a vehicle versus three pedestrians near the intersection of Soledad Canyon Road and Sierra Highway around 3:15 p.m., according to Supervisor Bernard Peters.
“We have one pediatric patient that we are trying to get airlifted to a hospital right now, and don’t know how many other people were involved (as of yet),” Peters said.
One other patient was airlifted with the child, and though the condition of the child is not clear at this time, Lt. James Royal of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station said the child is being airlifted as a precaution.
This is the fourth vehicle-versus-pedestrian incident in the last month, one of which was fatal.
