There was another violent encounter between a car and pedestrians last weekend as a 2007 Lexus traveling east on Wilshire Boulevard struck two women, aged 77 and 81, crossing in the marked crosswalk at 25th Street, at 10:20 p.m. on Saturday, July 14.
Patrol officers from the Santa Monica Police Department responded to the intersection. Both pedestrians were transported to a local hospital where their condition is listed as serious and stable as of Tuesday night, July 17. The driver of the vehicle, an 81-year-old man, was not injured and voluntarily submitted to a blood test. Results were not available at press time, and Santa Monica police are continuing to investigate the cause of the collision.
Meanwhile, regarding the May 2 pedestrian/auto collision in which 90-year-old Albert Zenner was killed at Idaho Avenue and 4th Street, SMPD spokesman Lt. Alex Padilla reported Tuesday, July 17, that the incident is in “the final stages of investigation.”
