Girl, 2, pinned under car
December 03, 2013, 05:00 AM

A 2-year-old girl was pinned under a car on Kelly Avenue in Half Moon Bay early Sunday afternoon and was airlifted to the hospital and in stable condition after bystanders lifted the car to free her, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

At approximately 12:17 p.m., a Half Moon Bay family was walking along Kelly Avenue at Potter Avenue when some of the adults saw a couch across the street with a sign indicating it was free. The adults left the children where they were to look at the couch and one of the children ran into the street in front of an incoming vehicle, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The driver immediately stopped his car, but the child was already pinned underneath. Several bystanders jumped into action and lifted the vehicle to free her. Another bystander who happened to be a physician’s assistant immediately tended to the child until the Sheriff’s Office and fire department arrived on scene and took over, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The child was conscious on scene and transported to Fire Station 40 where she was flown to the hospital by Life Flight, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The driver who collided with the child was extremely cooperative with law enforcement on scene and was not believed to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the collision, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
