When a child is struck by a vehicle, the injuries can be quite serious, and, in some instances, fatal. In one moment, a child is walking to school anticipating the ring of the bell to learn from the teachers and spend time with friends. In the next moment, the child is hit by a car and struggling for life. Recently, a child was hit by a pick up truck while on the way to her school – Middleton High School. It was reported that Shenika Davis was hit early in the morning while walking to school. The Florida pedestrian / automobile accident took place at East Hillsborough Avenue.
