Child hurt by car

Written by  Tuesday, 22 April 2014 09:47

  No charges will be filed against woman who struck an 8-year old child with her car Monday. 


  Georgia State Patrol Senior Trooper Tommy Strickland said the accident happened shortly before 3 Monday afternoon when the woman was backing out of her driveway at Plantation Mobile Home Park.  The child was one of several who had just gotten off a school bus.  She said she saw the children walk past her driveway but did not see the boy who had kneeled down to look at tadpoles in a ditch. 


  Initial reports said the child was having breathing difficulties and had been dragged by the car's bumper.  Strickland said his investigation found no such evidenced.  Muddy handprints on the bumper indicated the child may have, instead, grabbed the car's bumper.


  Emergency Medical Service personnel transported the child to East Georgia Regional Medical Center for treatment of back pain.
