[ARCHIVED] Car Pedestrian Collision Claims Life of Two Year-Old Child

Doney Park, AZ; Coconino County Sheriff’s Deputies and Detectives are investigating a fatality car pedestrian collision that occurred yesterday on Pioneer Valley Road located in the Doney Park subdivision east of Flagstaff.

On Monday, July 8, 2013 at about 4:41 pm deputies responded to the report of a car pedestrian collision in which the two year-old female victim was described as being in very serious condition. The first deputy arrived before any on-duty firefighters or medical personnel were on scene. The deputy found the child lying in the roadway unconscious, with obvious physical signs of severe head trauma. A retired Summit Fire Department firefighter with prior medical training was knelling over the child and stabilizing her head and neck. The deputy immediately began chest compressions and quickly determined the child had a pulse and very labored breathing. Medical personnel from the Summit Fire Department and Guardian Medical Transport arrived and took over the medical care of the victim. The child was transported to the Flagstaff Medical Center by Guardian ground ambulance.

During an interview with the fifty nine year-old female driver of the vehicle, deputies determined she was driving north on Pioneer Valley road at a speed of about 25 miles per hour when she looked to the west side of Pioneer Valley Road and saw a group of children playing in a residential yard adjacent to the road. According to the driver she slowed her vehicle to about 20 miles per hour. Deputies believe the child was in a yard on the east side of the road when she ran into the street and was struck by the front, passenger side of the car.

The child was pronounced deceased on Monday evening by a physician at the Flagstaff Medical Center. No enforcement action has been taken at this point as the investigation is ongoing.
