This morning, around 6:55 a.m., a child was hit by a vehicle in Independence, Missouri. While the extent of the injuries is currently still unknown, we do know that the child was rushed to Children's Mercy Hospital.
Police are investigating this accident, of course. It is far too early to tell if this accident, which has surely been turned into an insurance claim, will turn into a lawsuit against the driver or insurance company.
