The man said he saw the accident from his rearview mirror when he stopped at the next traffic lights.

The girl’s grandfather, who had accompanied her to the crossing, also said he saw her pressing the button and the red light coming on before she started walking towards the other side of the road.

Police asked the court to issue an arrest warrant against the 70-year-old, but their request was declined.
