The mother of the little boy and also the daughter-in-law of the old woman told KTVU, “I couldn’t believe it happened. I cannot think of how anyone could drive like that.” A surveillance camera installed outside the house of a resident named Yong Oin filmed the accident as she shared, “I know her. Every day, she walks around this way and takes her grandchildren to the high school track. Cars like this one don’t even stop.”

Another resident Eddie Herrera said, “Crossing this street is by far one of the most hazardous things. People barrel down this road,” and Oin added: “A traffic light I think is better.” Vision Zero, whose personnel reportedly “plan, develop, operate, and maintain transportation facilities, services, and related systems that contribute to the livability and economic health of the city,” also released a statement. Jesse Mintz-Roth of Vision Zero San Jose noted, “We're facing an unprecedented year for traffic fatalities and pedestrians are making up the biggest group of victims, more than any other group.” Meanwhile, local law enforcement officials have initiated a probe into the matter and urged people to call the police department at 408-277-4654 if they have any information.
