Don't know, but been hearing sirens for a couple of minutes was wondering what it was. Hope everything is okay, but people laying on the ground doesnt sound too good. Praying everything is okay.

I hope all is ok. He did say it was by the trailor park... Again I hope all is ok.

 

I detoured on Lindsey lake, but there were a bunch of people standing on both sides of the road and I saw a woman run across the road with her hands on her head (like she was distressed), but couldn't tell what had happened.

I'm not that far from this area. We heard a little bit of sirens, but no life flight or any other sirens/further sounds since about 20+ minutes ago.

 

Hoping this is a good sign :::fingerscrossed:::

Haven’t heard much more on this other than the traffic of the officers directing traffic

 

a clark unit did go in service

 

Didn’t hear of any traffic of a Clark unit transporting anyone - they normally relay their beginning mileage and destination as they leave the scene.

 

Heading out – Freebird 10-42

Is this the same trailer park that the baby was hit about 5 years ago?

Two boys hit by car on Hwy. 61 in Paulding

 

By MASHAUN D. SIMON

 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

7:43 p.m. Thursday, August 20, 2009

 

Two young boys were reportedly “banged up a bit” after being struck by a car in Paulding County.

 

The boys, both 9, ran across Ga. Hwy 61 when a woman in a Chevy Cavalier, traveling north, struck them, said Lt. Paul Cosper, Georgia State Patrol spokesman.

 

No charges have been filed.

 

“The woman did nothing wrong,” said Cosper.

 

One of the boys was transported to Egleston Children’s Hospital. The other was taken to Scottish Rite Hospital. The boys appeared to be fine on the scene, said Cosper.

 

Their current medical condition is unknown.
