A Santa Maria woman and two young children being pushed in a stroller sustained minor injuries Thursday morning after they were hit by a truck while crossing the intersection at Main and Pine streets in Santa Maria.
About 10:45 a.m., Josefina Morales, 42, was pushing a stroller with a 1-year-old male and a 2-year-old female. As they crossed Pine Street, they were struck by a 2007 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Eddie Glen Williams, 41, of Santa Maria.
Williams was driving south on Pine and attempting a right turn onto Main Street at the time of the collision.
He was not injured. Morales and both children sustained minor injuries and were transported by ambulance to Marian Medical Center for evaluation and treatment.
A witness, Guadalupe Alejandra, 55, of Santa Maria, was walking several feet behind Morales when the collision occurred. She fainted at the scene and also was transported to the medical center. She was not injured or involved in the collision.
Police determined Williams was driving with a valid California driver’s license. The collision remains under investigation by the Santa Maria Police Department Traffic Bureau.
