A woman who was among a group of pedestrians struck by a student driver while crossing a street in Livermore on Saturday underwent more surgery today to repair two broken legs, a Livermore police collision investigator said.
Both of the woman's legs were broken in the crash, and she is expected to be in a wheelchair for at least two months, Officer David Boyes said.
Six other pedestrians were hit as well, and one of them also sustained a broken leg. The others suffered more minor injuries, Boyes said.
The crash happened shortly before 8 p.m. at the intersection of Vallecitos and Wetmore roads.
Investigators determined that Livermore resident Farhat Mohammad, 20, had been driving a Honda Civic west on Wetmore Road when she turned left onto Vallecitos Road and struck the seven pedestrians.
The pedestrians, all adults, were in a marked crosswalk when they were hit, police said.
One person was taken by helicopter to John Muir Medical Center and two were transported by ground ambulance to Eden Medical Center.
Everyone but the woman with the two broken legs has been released from the hospital.
Mohammad had a valid drivers permit and was accompanied by a licensed driver at the time of the crash, police said. Boyes said there was no indication that drugs or alcohol were involved.
As of this afternoon, she had not been charged with any crime, and the case was still under investigation.
