  • obviously either the driver doesn’t know the rules or doesn’t care. Did the girl’s mother see her daughter climb onto the outside of the vehicle.

  • Do hope she will be alright. Did she not want to go where she was dropped off? Guess we won’t know the answer to that fir a while.

  • Aw bless, hope and pray she makes a full recovery. Kids can do silly things, not knowing what the consequence could be.

  • I hope she makes a full recovery. Kids don’t often think about the consequences of their actions and she probably just did it thinking it would be funny or to make her brother laugh. Thinking of her and her family

  • 11 is old enough to know better. I’m sure she was thinking it’d be funny, but sadly it really really wasn’t! Hope she makes a full recovery!
