Los Angeles County, California (March 20, 2018): Four students were reportedly injured in a pedestrian collision with a motor vehicle near Paramount High School yesterday afternoon, Monday, March 19, 2018. The Lakewood County Sheriff’s Office has launched an active investigation into the incident and only limited information has been made publicly available while the investigation remains ongoing.

Officials believe the crash happened just after 3:00 p.m. near Rosencrans Avenue and Downey Avenue in Paramount, CA. The four victims, all students of Paramount High School, were reportedly walking on the sidewalk not far from the school when a truck veered onto the sidewalk and struck them. The driver of the truck is believed to have lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons, but no further information about the driver has been provided. The four students were transported to a nearby hospital, but no details about their respective conditions or the severity of their injuries have been released.
