Child Hit by Race Car On Pikes Peak

A young girl was struck by a race car on a practice run for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Friday morning, according to police. The 6-year-old girl was transported by helicopter to Memorial Hospital, where she was treated for non life-threatening injuries. A man, who was also injured in the incident, was transported via ambulance to Penrose Hospital for treatment of back injuries. The police were uncertain whether the man was the driver or a passenger in the vehicle that struck the girl.

Car accidents involving child victims are devastating, both to the child and the parents. Outside of physical injuries that may be life threatening, the child will likely develop emotional trauma after the accident. And parents also face financial difficulties due to medical bills for their child in addition to emotional distress. Parents of children injured in pedestrian accidents should seek advice from a reliable, experienced, and compassionate personal injury lawyer who will help them get justice and compensation for their child’s injuries.commercial bouncy castles for sale australia
