Pedestrian suffers non-life-threatening injuries from Main Street accident

Thursday, May 2—A 16-year-old Ramona girl is in an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle as she walked across Main Street last night, reports California Highway Patrol.

The teen was crossing from the west side of Main heading toward McDonald’s when, according to witnesses, she crossed directly into the path of a northbound 2005 ES330, said CHP Officer Brian Pennings.

“The driver had little to no time to react,” said Pennings.

The teen, who suffered major head trauma, was unconscious and unresponsive and airlifted to the hospital, CHP reports.

The driver of the Lexus, Deborah McCarty, 52, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, said Pennings.

The incident occurred at 7:48 p.m.

    If Officer Brian Pennings stated that, “The driver had little to no time to react,” is it common place now to arrest people for suspicion of driving under the influence?

      The fact could be the driver had little time to react AND was under the influence. You must have been under the influence when you thought that.

    I have seen so many other kids nearly get hit at this 16th st McDonald’s intersection. Put a light in!!!!! Kids are too lazy to walk down to the next street to use a crosswalk.

      So, the taxpayers get stuck with the bill for a signal because kids are too lazy to walk a block? So, now we need a signal at every corner? Come on, get a grip on reality here!
