Teacher who struck child won't face criminal charges
EAST PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO) -- A school teacher who accidentally struck and killed a 6-year-old girl in an East Palo Alto crosswalk last September will not face criminal charges.
San Mateo County district attorney's office calls it a tragic case, but says there is no evidence to suggest the law was broken.
The teacher, Fern White-Parker, was on her way to Costano Elementary School when she hit Sioreli Torres at the intersection of Bay Road and Gloria Way. The intersection is considered one of the most dangerous in the city. The city is considering tougher safety measures in response to calls from parents and residents.
