A 34-year-old woman and two young children, aged 8 and 4, were killed last Saturday evening in Placentia when they were struck by a car while walking. The teenage daughter of the woman witnessed the collision, which happened at approximately 10:23 p.m., just after her family had walked out of their apartment.
Two police officers who were nearby arrived at the scene shortly after the collision happened. There, they found three individuals unconscious on the roadway. Paramedics quickly arrived to tend to the victims, but they were unable to save them and all three of the victims were pronounced dead at the accident site.
