Update: Victim in Hit & Run Accident Fully Recovered

About 6 weeks ago, we reported on the Hit and Run incident on Balboa peninsula, which sent a 14 year old girl to the hospital after she was struck on her bicycle by a vehicle on E Bay Ave and Anade.

While the family would still like to keep things quiet, I am happy to report that she has made a full recovery, according to a source close to the family.

They have also expressed gratitude for the community support and the quick locating of the vehicle by an eagle-eyed resident.

The driver is expected to plead guilty at trial in the next few weeks, and the judge could hand down a sentence of between 90 and 365 days in jail, a fine between $1,000 and $10,000 dollars, or both.
