SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) — A woman has been arrested after confessing to police that she was involved in a hit-and-run incident with an elderly woman and a toddler, according to the San Jose Police Department.
In the early evening of Oct. 25, officers were called to the scene of a collision between a vehicle and two pedestrians. Footage from the incident shows an elderly woman walking with a toddler inside of a stroller in a marked crosswalk. A few steps into the street, the woman and toddler were hit by a driver in a dark-colored car.
On Oct. 27, a community member reported that they saw a vehicle that resembled images of the car in SJPD’s press release on the incident. Officers then responded to a residence in San Jose and found the vehicle.
