A 12-year-old was struck down by a moving vehicle, near Simpson Middle School along Trickum Road in Marietta. The child was eventually airlifted from WellStar Kennstone Hospital to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta due to the severity of the injuries.
When a vehicle moving at even slow speeds, collides with a person on the street, the results can be catastrophic. Such a collision may cause permanent injuries and the need for life-long treatment.
In this particular case, the incident occurred near a school. Anyone who operates a motor vehicle in a school zone needs to pay complete attention to the roadway and be alert to the presence of all pedestrians, including children. Even one small distraction can cause permanent harm to a child and/or accompanying parent.
