HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - UPDATE: A 4-year-old Audrionna Morre is recovering after being struck by a motorcycle last week.
A family friend said she's still in the hospital recovering and said she's getting better every day. She is out of NICU; doctors have moved her down a unit. Moore will soon start to have therapy lessons.
It happened in the 3300 block of East Tucker Drive NW in Huntsville. Kristina Ramirez said she saw the whole thing happen.
“I ran down there you know. I’m the one who called the police she was just laying there on the ground just not moving," neighbor Kristina Ramirez said.
Ramirez said the incident hits close to her heart, because she has a 9-year-old daughter and a newborn. She said every time she looks at them now; she's reminded of the little girl. She said that's why she hugs them much tighter.
“I love children, it just broke my heart to see that little girl like that. I never want anything to happen to someone’s child," Ramirez said.
She said it's rare for someone to be speeding in the neighborhood, but it does happen. Also, that it's a reminder to her and neighbors to be aware of where their children are at all times.
“I don’t have an answer as to why it happened, but I’m just praying for that little baby, her family, and everyone on the street because it’s a bad thing that happened," Ramirez said.
She said it will take a lot of time for the neighborhood to recover, but this incident is an eye opener for everyone who have children.
Huntsville police said the driver of the motorcycle has been tested for drugs and alcohol. They say no charges have been filed yet.
