4-Year-Old Girl Injured in Phoenix Car Accident When Vehicle Crashes into Her Home
When people venture out into traffic, they generally understand that there is some sort of risk involved with doing so. This is true whether someone is driving a motor vehicle, riding a bicycle or even traveling on foot. However, no one who is sitting in their home would ever be wary of danger from passing motorists on the street outside. Sadly, it was proven that even being at home can involve danger when a 4-year-old girl was hit and injured while in her home by a motorist in a Phoenix car accident that is still being investigated.
According to authorities, this Phoenix car accident occurred this morning at 10:15 a.m. near 27th Avenue and Bethany Home Road. The girl was inside her home with her two siblings and her mother when suddenly, a Qwest commercial truck slammed through a wall that surrounded their yard and through the front of their home, hitting them. The girl was injured and was rushed to a nearby hospital, and thankfully she is expected to survive. The names of those involved were not released and police have yet to identify a cause for this crash.
