The teacher who hit and killed an 8-year-old East Palo Alto girl last month blames the sun.

Palo Alto Police say the teacher told them she was blinded by the morning sun and didn't see Siorelli Torres Zamora in the crosswalk on September 28.

The accident happened at the intersection of Bay Road and Gloria Way.

Another driver who hit a boy at the same intersection around the same time earlier this year also blamed the sun.
