Brigham City grandmother killed in auto-pedestrian crash

BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A car that slid out of control from a crash in Brigham City killed a woman walking nearby with her three grandchildren.

Witnesses said the crash scene looked frantic Thursday where a Brigham City grandmother was hit and killed. Police said the woman was walking with her three grandchildren near the intersection of Main St. and 700 S. in Brigham City when two cars crashed into each other.

"Very tragic scene, very horrific scene to be able to watch this kind of thing happen," said Lt. Dennis Vincent, Brigham City Police Dept.

The drivers collided with so much force, the impact forced at least one of the cars over the curb and crashed into the woman and her grandchildren walking several feet away. Police said the grandmother was rushed to the hospital, but later died.

Tessa Pacheco, working at a nearby restaurant, said she saw the woman and her grandchildren just moments before the crash and couldn't believe what happened.

"I just thought about it and that was a lady that I saw just a second ago," said Tessa Pacheco, J&D's Family Restaurant.

Police said it's up to drivers to prevent these types of pedestrian crashes in the future.

"When you're driving a vehicle, that's your main focus, just pay attention to your driving and your surroundings because accidents can happen in a split second," said Vincent.

Although the grandmother died, ABC 4 is told the three grandchildren are in stable condition.

An 87 year old woman, driving one of the two cars, is expected to be cited for failure to yield.
