Pitman Student Struck by Vehicle


According to school officials at Pitman High School, a 15-year-old male student was struck by a vehicle at approximately 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning in the crosswalk at Kilroy Road and Christoffersen Parkway.

PHS Principal Rod Hollars says the boy, who is a freshman, was walking north on the east side of Kilroy Road and walked out into the crosswalk on a green light when a car making a right-hand turn onto Christoffersen Parkway from northbound Kilroy Road struck and injured the boy.

“He was taken to Doctors hospital and from what I could tell there wasn’t any blood or any visible broken bones, but he was shaken up,” said Hollars.

Due to privacy concerns Hollars said he could not release the boy’s name.

Hollars said several witnesses claimed the light was green and apparently the female driver, who was an adult, must have not been paying attention when making the right turn.

“He was probably a good 10 to 15 feet into the crosswalk already,” said Hollars.

In the minutes after the boy was hit, PHS campus supervisors and maintenance staff quickly secured the intersection until Turlock police, fire, and ambulance services arrived.

“I was duly impressed with how quickly and efficiently the whole incident was handled,” said Hollars. “I walked out of my office at 7:35 to 7:40 and by 8:05 he was taken by ambulance and the entire intersection was cleared.”

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
