From the Truck Safety Coalition… 10 Year Old Girl Survives After She Was Hit by a Box Truck

After stepping off of the school bus and crossing the street, 10 year old, Olivia Walter, was struck by a box truck. Despite another motorist stopping and waving her to cross the street, a box truck that was approaching from the other lane hit her on the right side. The girl sustained a fractured bone above her eye and bruises and road rash on the right side of her body. TSC supports collision avoidance technologies that require automatic braking, which may have prevented this truck from hitting this girl.
