    "How do you get stuck under a parked truck?"

    Inexperienced driver at the wheel.

    I'm sorry for her. But is this really new worthy material.

    glad you are not a reporter... you'd most likely post a turtle getting run over... :)

    How do you get stuck under a parked truck? Sounds like they left out some details. While the hope is that other parents will learn from this and be more careful, I doubt it will make a difference to those who feel accidents happen and nothing is more important than having fun.

    This is definitely newsworthy for two reasons:
    1. The little girl and her family need to know that they have the support of the community at this time, and
    2. Maybe it will serve as a reminder to parents that these kind of vehicles, (four wheelers, go karts, etc.) are not for young children.
