A woman headed to pick up a girl at an elementary school was hit by a truck while in a crosswalk on San Vicente Boulevard at Cynthia Street this afternoon.

The incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. and the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station confirmed that she had been taken to the hospital. At

this point her identity is not known nor is her condition.

However, a witness on the scene told WEHOville that she was crossing San Vicente from east to west, with the crosswalk light green. Someone driving a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck west on Cynthia turned south onto San Vicente, apparently without seeing the woman, and struck her.

The witness said the woman was said to be a nanny and, while laying on the sidewalk, was observed calling the father of a young girl she was headed to pick up at elementary school. He arrived shortly after the call.

The watch commander at the Sheriff’s Station said the incident is still under investigation and as of yet no charges have been filed.

It’s a wonder it doesn’t happen all the time!! People are driving like crazy maniacs on San Vicente. 50 mph is the norm! Several of us in area have called Sheriff to complain and have some sort of enforcement of speed laws but of course the only thing you get from them is lip service with nothing ever done. Their level of incompetence and disregard for common sense enforcement is mind boggling, but yet they have no problem standing for hours blocking driveways for a marathon or special event . It’s funny that the city is considering allowing a pre-school… Read more »

It seems indifference rather than incompetence regarding enforcement on most issues in Weho. All in the character and the policy of folks that want to appear solution minded but lack proper judgement

Sheriff station is just down the street. I live just a few blocks from this intersection and I see idiots driving way too fast all the time. They use to do it even on Harratt until the speed bumps were installed,

Still think it is a good idea to build that preschool on San Vicente? Traffic is already a mess, and people fly up and down the hill with zero regard. Someone was killed crossing where that preschool is proposing to build. Not to mention the impact on parking by construction workers and parents parking rather than going through the proposed pick up driveway.
