The pedestrian accident occurred as the girls crossed the crosswalk when one vehicle stopped for them but a second vehicle failed to stop and struck both girls.
Vehicle Code, RCW 46.61.235, states that whenever a vehicle is stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross the street, another vehicle approaching from the rear shall not pass the stopped vehicle.
