This is the minor child's mother. She was thrown about 115 ft. and not 50 ft. she was hit by a truck not a car. She is still alive thank God. She had several broken bones and will be going under surgery today. She has been in good spirits through all of this. She laughs, she cries and most of all nightmares.
