Drive Safely Please!!!!!
Yesterday afternoon my niece Julia (2 1/2) was struck by a car. By sheer luck the driver was driving the speed limit. Which probably saved my nieces life. My sister was getting ready to take the kids to a friends house to swim, when my niece got away from her, ran between the cars parked in front of my parents house and was struck by the car. She flew about 10-15 ft and was unconscious for a short time. The paramedics arrived, placed her in a brace and got her to the nearest hospital. She was stabilized at the hospital and flown to UC Davis where the have a better trauma center for children. She was released at 2am this morning with some large scrapes a bruises. Thank goodness the driver was going the speed limit. I hope that you all remember that speed limits are posted for one reason, to protect us and others. An extra minute doesn't mean anything if it means a life. Please drive safe out there. I'll get off my soapbox now. Thanks.
