Kids Walking Home from School Hit by Pickup Truck

The driver of a pickup truck lost control and crashed into three children who were walking home from school Wednesday afternoon. The crash occurred just before 12:30 p.m. near Barstow Junior High School.

According to police, 42-year-old James Ray Arroyo was heading east on Armory Road in a red pickup truck when he lost control. The pickup truck jumped the curb and crashed through a temporary construction fence at the school before colliding with the children.

The children all suffered minor injuries. They were treated by paramedics, then taken to the hospital. Police say the driver was not under the influence when he lost control of the vehicle, and they are still investigating the cause of the crash.

“Our thoughts are with the children who were hurt in this crash. Please remember to be especially cautious when driving around schools,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
