HALF MOON BAY (CBS SF) - A 2-year-old girl is recovering from her injuries after she was pinned under a car in Half Moon Bay on Sunday, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
At about 12:15 p.m., the girl was walking with relatives on Kelly Avenue when adults in the group crossed the street to look at a free couch that had been left outside, sheriff's spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said.
The girl followed them, running into the street into the path of an oncoming vehicle, Rosenblatt said.
The girl was pinned under the car and several bystanders helped lift the vehicle to get her out, Rosenblatt said. An off-duty physician's assistant at the scene began rendering aid to the young victim.
She was then taken to a nearby fire station, where an air ambulance transported her to Stanford Hospital.
The driver cooperated with investigators, and there was no indication that drugs or alcohol were involved.
The girl has since been released from the hospital, Rosenblatt said.
