The incident took place on Independence Avenue in the vicinity of Bike Plus. Sources confirmed to Antigua News Room (ANR) that traffic in both directions had stopped to let the little girl cross, while one driver overtook the standing vehicle in front of it and ran into the child. The female driver of a Suzuki Vitara is in police custody assisting them with investigations.
The four year old has significant injury to one of her legs and bruises about her body.
