Prayers Needed for Girl, 11, Struck by Jeep in Aquilla
A young child is reportedly in critical condition after being hit by a vehicle in Aquilla Monday.
Our partners at News Channel 10 report that the 11-year-old girl was hit by a Jeep as she crossed FM 933 near FM 2114 around 10:20 AM. She was transported to Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth.
The driver was treated for minor injuries. No charges had been filed Monday afternoon.
We hope the little girl will pull through. Any prayers and positivity we can all send her way can only help.
School is out for summer, so kids will be out walking along and sometimes even playing in the street at all times of day. As with any time of the year, it's important to keep an eye out for kids as you're driving around, especially in residential areas.
It's also a good idea to take it easy through school zones, even if the yellow lights aren't flashing. There may be summer school students walking around, or kids who still play on school playground equipment during summer break.
