    I don't know of any chilrens that I may or may not have but if I found out that a child was hit by a car and I was the father, you bet I would be calling a personal injury attorney to represent me for my loss.

    Why was not the parents watching this child? Children don't see danger like adults do.

    Wonder if it had anything to do with the truck that hit a light pole on Sunday afternoon? That accident happened before 1pm on Sunday though so it might have been someone going to the scene and that is why they aren't releasing details. Pray this little girl comes through fine.
