Citizens in Covina, California are calling for officials to set up a traffic light at the spot where two people were injured in a car accident on November 8, according to SGVTribune.com. Dozens of people gathered with signs and candles on the night of the accident at the crosswalk where the accident occurred.
Two 14-year-old twin girls—Leilani and Luana Fukui–were struck at the crosswalk and remain hospitalized, in critical condition and on life support. A Honda Civic traveling 30 mph hit the girls, causing serious injuries to both of them.
“They’re on machines that are helping them breathe,” says Rosa Saca, spokeswoman for Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.
“They’re have been many accidents here,” said resident Debbie Marin. “I’ve been here 30 years. I’ve seen a lot.”
