"Mayor Karen Bass and I agree that unacceptable and preventable frequency of vehicular incidents are
impacting the health, well-being and safety of our children," Carvalho said.
Three students have been struck by vehicles in just one week.
On April 25, a mother was killed while walking her 6-year-old daughter to Hancock Park Elementary School in the Mid-Wilshire area. A truck struck them then collided into a two-story apartment building. Ghada died at the scene and her 6-year-old child was taken to the hospital in critical condition and remains in the ICU.
