Chandra Racine, a neighbor, said the preteen girl, Hannah Ivanhoe, was waiting for the school bus at 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, when she was hit by the pickup in the 6200 block of Azure Way. Racine said the girl lost consciousness for a couple minutes, suffering a concussion, a broken nose, a cut on her leg and body swelling.
Here are some photos Racine took after the ambulance whisked the girl away. Ivanhoe’s headband was knocked off on impact.
As you can see, there’s no actual fog line there, as originally reported by law enforcement. But it’s pretty obvious where the fog line would be. And that gives some frame of reference for how the Ford F-150 went a few feet into the driveway.
“She was standing where she always does, at a safe distance from the road,” Racine said via email. “Or … we thought it would be safe, since it’s not in the road. I’m happy that she is going to be OK.”
Also, the girl’s mother emailed me to say Ivanhoe is actually 11 years old. State patrol gave the incorrect age.
The good news is she was released from the hospital at 2 p.m. Thursday.
