Today in Pittsburg, a day of remembrance for road traffic victims will be held between 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the East County Boys and Girls Club. The event will feature memorial tables where people who have lost their family and friends can display photos and other memorabilia.
The event is to help bring awareness for pedestrian protection and road safety which is being put on by the Stop Stop Stop Ameeya McDonald Foundation. The event will have a jumper for children, memorial tables, along with food and drinks. There will also be a basketball tournament for youths.
The event is being held just two months after Ameeya McDonald died of her injuries after a Sept. 22 accident occurred on Jimno Ave where she ran into the street after the ball and the driver of a passing vehicle didn’t see her and hit her. Less than 24-hours earlier, Burgess Hu was hit and killed by an SUV riding his bike to school in Byron.
