I just heard two kids have been hit. Not sure of the details yet.

 

 

It was two kids. I had just past them all out there playing on bikes and running around near the road. I was pumping gas when I heard the impact. The kids I saw were kids in my classes. If anyone knows the names will you pm me and let me know who they were? Thanks.

Prayers for all involved. Missed the news so will watch at 10:00 to see if there is any updates. I know in the other post they said no fatalities. I hope this is still the answer. If I am not mistaken they have had this happen before with a child being killed. There are always kids out there playing to close to those roads.

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.

It was two younger kids running around and ran across the raod without looking. It was a hard inpact one went into the windshield and over the car. The driver was at no fault the kids was just not paying any attention. Kids are always running out in front of car the [arents need to watch their kids. M prayers go out to these kids and the driver of the car.

I live off Lyndsey lake road, and this breaks my heart. I cannot tell you how many times I have almost drove off the road to avoid young children in this area unsupervised. One of my friends from high school had a accident in this same area involving a young child. I am unaware of this situation and I wont say that these kids were unsupervised, because my kids too get away, however, "most" kids in the area run around without adult supervision, in and out of the road.

I just saw it on WSB.

 

I was at work today, so not on here to see this.

 

And yeah, I live off Paul Aiken, and I pass those trailers everyday.

 

They are right on the road and bunches of kids out there playing and everytime I think it wouldn't take but just a mis-step and one of those kids would be in the road and run over.

 

I'm glad the little boy is okay and at the hospital.

 

Really sad.

 

Prayers for the family.

Welcome, you will find the info there.

Does anyone know the names of the two boys who were hit at the trailer park on Hwy 61?

 

 

Channel 2 just said the boy that will have surgery today on a broken leg is Zack Nance. They didn't name the other child but said they expect him to recover.

I didn't catch all of it, but Fox 5 was reporting that a couple of children was hit by a vehicle yesterday afternoon. Has anyone heard anything about it and where it happened at?
