First Grader Killed by Car While Walking to School

A six year old Arlington girl was killed this morning when she was hit by a car while walking to school with her mother.

The girl was a first grade student at Dunn Elementary. She was walking ahead of her mother on the median of Park Springs Boulevard, but when she ran back to her mother, she was struck by a pickup truck. She was rushed to the Medical Center of Arlington, but died there of her injuries.

Police do not believe that the driver of the pickup was speeding or driving under the influence. It is not known whether he was paying attention while he was driving though.

Pedestrian accidents kill thousands each year, and unfortunately a large number of these occur in school zones where children are walking and playing.
