7 Year Old Michigan Girl Killed on I-94 After Walking Away From Crash
This story is just horrible on so many levels.
According to WNEM, a 7-year-old girl was killed over the weekend while trying to cross I-94 after her father was involved in a drunken driving crash in Romulus near Detroit Metro Airport. She sent some text messages trying to get someone to help her and her father but was then killed while trying to cross 94. A driver called state police to say she may have hit a pedestrian.
This poor girl had to get into a vehicle with her drunk dad (I'm sure she didn't have a choice), she then survives an accident, only to be struck and killed by another vehicle. Absolutely heartbreaking.
The little girl's father was arrested, while the driver who struck the girl was released. Now the father has to live with what he did for the rest of his life along with the woman who accidentally hit her.
WXYZ reported that the father hit an abandoned vehicle then ran off the road and into a fence.
