Woman dies, others hurt, after family struck by car while waiting to cross the street in Covina

COVINA — A woman died and three other people, including a baby, were injured Saturday after two cars collided in an intersection, sending one of them careening into a Covina family that was standing at the corner, authorities said.
The crash took place about 5:20 p.m. at San Bernardino Road and Vincent Avenue, Covina police Lt. Dave Foster said.
A Chevrolet Impala was eastbound on San Bernardino Road and a Honda Ridgeline pickup truck was westbound when one of them attempted to make a left turn, and they collided in the intersection, Foster said.
One of the vehicles veered onto the northwest corner of the intersection, where five pedestrians were waiting to cross the street, the lieutenant said. The initial investigation indicated the five pedestrians were family members.
A Covina woman in her early 30s was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. A 7-month-old baby and a woman in her 50s who were also struck by the vehicle were taken to a hospital in unknown condition. Two teenage boys who were standing with the others on the corner were not injured.
A woman in her 50s who was riding as a passenger in the Honda also suffered unknown injuries, while the driver, a man in his late-20s, was not seriously hurt, Foster said.
The driver of the Impala, a man in his late-60s, did not appear to have suffered significant injuries, he added.
Police said there were no initial signs of drunken driving or any other crime.
All four directions of travel approaching the intersection remained blocked Saturday night as police continued their investigation.
