Grandma is a hero, of sorts. Yesterday morning while walking her two grandchildren to school she was hit by a car while shielding the kids from from the accident. According to reports, the three were walking in a crosswalk on Holt Avenue in Santa Ana, with vehicles stopped for them, when a red Nissan Sentra failed to stop.
Seeing the Sentra approaching, grandma stood in front of the children to block them from the collision. Grandma was hit by the car, and thrown onto the hood, and then onto the ground. She was taken to the hospital with scrapes and bruises, and possibly broken bones, but is expected to survive. One of the children was glanced by the car, but not injured.
