13-year-old girl seriously injured when struck by car at Savannah Pines Mobile Home Community in Garden City, Georgia
"You never want to hear this happening to any child," Blanton said. "I knew her since she was a little baby, and it's really hard. Family is just beside themselves. The child is going to have lifelong injuries, lifelong problems. She's having to have a steel rod put in her back, a plastic hip... These are things you give to someone who's 60, 65 years old, not a child, you know? She's just starting life, you know, and she deserves so much better."
