AURORA | Two unidentified teenage pedestrians were hit by a car and injured, one critically, Wednesday night near East Colfax Avenue and Moline Street in Aurora, according to Aurora police.
Eastbound Colfax at Moline was closed at about 9 p.m.
Both of the teenagers were rushed to a nearby hospital, police said. “One with life-threatening injuries.”
The driver remained on the scene, police said.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
A number of times I have witnessed pedestrians illegally cross againsthe RED signal.
Some, it appeared, arrogantly acted as though they owned the right-of-way and unfairly caused traffic in both directions to stop.
Were the teens crossing againsthe RED signal and one car stopped and another, not seeing them, passed the stopped car and they stepped in front of the moving vehicle?
Such places the blamentirely upon them.
As an EMS Driver Instructor, I recommend that everyehicle have a dash camera.
Today the dash cameras are inexpensive and video excellent.
