Maybe next time she should try running across Grand instead of just walking.

Seriously, there is on average at least 1 hit and run a week in this city. Where has the humanity gone. I am ashamed of this world we live in, this city especially disgusting.

I see a lot of young adults and high school kids driving reckless around here. I'm can almost bet it was an 18 year old stoned with music up loud and dint even notice. Or dis notice sams freaked out because the man would get them because that dd they have is illegal. And I agree this is going to get much worse with no school busses.

Jenny, you know you can just delete your entire original comment after posting and then retype it fresh so your phone doesn't look so stupid.

Actually, "U.S. Citizens" & "Illigals" (being that that's what's being thrown out there in comments) on Grand think they OWN the road/s & highways. I'm guilty at time but not everyday & every second. I live with one that thinks they own the road (not to the extreme but still no excuse) & it is embarrassing. What is sad is that our children today see that example & follow suit most of the time.....Lead by example. Society today believe that everything is owed to them & that they own the road/s and highways. What is sad that when they own the road/s & highways the driver they past by are Right behind them at a stoplight, stop sign, parking lot and etc (then who knows, your standing behind them in a building).... don't understand. We get so focused into our world around us that we don't know what we are doing or we just don't care & it will be our way ( and/ or the highway). Yes, it will get worse with no school busses. Unless the community takes action and notify the proper authorities when a person is hit. Thankful this lady had a friend with her who called 911.

Didn't the Governor just sign bill SB81 repealing those spending cuts? Or in any event, allowing the schools to absorb the cuts in other places....

Grand Avenue is a very dangerous road, there is no street lighting, the road lanes are unmarked and people drive way to fast. Pedestrians cross randomly all up and down Grand in the dark with black hoodies over their heads and you can barely see them, the County needs to install some very much needed street lights on this road. The commuters from Murrieta and Temecula need to slow down when using this road and in spite of what they think the left hand turn lane is not for passing.

Lets waste more money on ignorant people. Why not put in pedestrian bridges at a cost of many millions of dollars each so they can ignore them and cross where ever they want to anyway. The only thing lights would do is allow you to see the dummies just before they step out in front of you. As for catching the jack-a** that hit this person, seems no one was paying enough attention to even get a description of the vehicle.

We need to protect illegal illegal jay walkers from getting run down by illegals with no licenses, etc..

Ok, this is my buddies girlfriend that got hit. Her name is Lacinda and she is deaf. I'm sure that didn't help her cause. As a result of being struck, she had her wrist and ankle fractered....
