“Dear PoPville,

please share this fundraiser to help the children and their father who were hit by a driver on their way to school?? thanks!”

The GoFundMe says:

“Thank you for taking the time to read my request for support. On October 6, 2021, I was walking my daughters to school at approximately 8:50 a.m. We were crossing the street at the intersection of Mississippi and Wheeler Road when a truck sped towards us turning onto Wheeler from Mississippi Avenue. She struck me and my daughters.

Not only where we hit by this truck but I was dragged almost 20 feet from my daughters. There was no crossing guard present. My 8 year old daughter has a broken leg and my 6 year old daughter had to have emergency plastic surgery to reconstruct her face. I am no longer able to work because my injuries have caused me not to be able to continue my job as a runner for Capital One Arena. This is a traumatic experience for all of us. I am asking for your support due to the severity of the injuries because I do not have insurance for my youngest daughter and both will also need therapy. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I am just happy that we all survived.

Any support that you can provide is greatly appreciated.”
