High School Student Struck by Vehicle on Lodi Avenue


 Details: Today at approximately 2:15 pm a 15 year old female Lodi High School student was struck by a motor vehicle driven by a 69 year old male.  She was semi-conscious when police officers arrived on scene and unable to speak with them.  The 15 year old female sustained head injuries and was transported to a local hospital.


The collision occurred near the intersection of Lodi Avenue and Virginia Street, which borders to the south of Lodi High School.  The investigation is currently in progress; however, traffic collision investigators suspect a right-of-way occurred by either the driver or the pedestrian.  Traffic collision investigators are currently interviewing the 69 year old driver and witnesses.


The names of the involved parties have not been released pending family notifications.


The 15 year old is in stable condition with bruising and scratches to her face and a contusion to the left side of her head.  If interested in more information, please call me and I will pass on the information as it becomes available.


Thank you,

Dale Eubanks
