Six-Year-old Girl Dies In Pedestrian Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A 6-year-old girl was struck and killed in a tragic
pedestrian accident in North Carolina. According to authorities, the child was hit by a vehicle
traveling on U.S. 70 in Black Mountain on Friday. Officials say the child
had special needs and ran from her mother in a parking lot at the Goodwill
store in Black Mountain. The mother was unable to catch her before she
ran into oncoming traffic and was struck. Witnesses say the mother tripped
and fell as she was running after the child. The child was taken to a
local hospital where she later died from her injuries sustained in the
accident. Police are still investigation the accident but do not believe
alcohol or speed were factors in the pedestrian accident.
