At 6:45 p.m. Dec. 12, a male and female, both 18 and from Pleasanton, walked eastbound in the crosswalk across Santa Rita Road at San Francisco Street. As they began to cross the northbound lanes of Santa Rita Road, they were struck by a 1998 Cadillac El Dorado driven by an 85-year-old male Pleasanton resident. Both pedestrians sustained injuries and were transported to Eden Hospital where they are listed in stable condition.
The driver was not injured and alcohol was not a factor. The collision is still under investigation. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call Officer Jon Blanchard or Officer Tom Hansen.
