It’s every parent’s worst nightmare and something we all fear – that our children might one day get hit by a vehicle on the street.
Unfortunately, we read about it year after year. This time, it involves a precious 7-year-old girl from Utah.

Emery Burrows, 7, from St.George, Utah, is now fighting for her life at a Las Vegas hospital. She needs all the support she can get – thankfully, there are many people rallying behind her and her family.

The tragic accident happened last weekend. Emery, described by her family as a ”firecracker”, was struck by a pickup truck and sustained severe injuries.

She was airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas, where she is receiving treatment. According to the family, Emery and her brother were playing soccer in their front yard at dusk when their ball rolled into the road. Emery did as she had been instructed: she waited for the cars to pass so she could retrieve the ball. She spotted one car approaching, but didn’t see a pickup truck approaching from the other side.

”She looked right, looked left, she looked left there was a car coming, she stopped that car saw her, saw the ball, and stopped,” her aunt, Kate Story, told Fox13.

”Then Emery proceeded to run from that car and didn’t see there was a vehicle coming the opposite way.”

The collision was severe, and chaos unfolded at the scene. When officers arrived, they found Emery unconscious.

The driver, a neighbor who lives near the Burrows family, never saw Emery. He remained at the scene and cooperated with the police investigation.

”There’s nothing they could’ve done; it’s dark, you don’t see a ball or a kid,” Kate Story said. ”Then all of a sudden there’s this little peanut right in front of you.”

Emery suffered serious injuries, including a fractured skull, brain bleeding, and a tibia fracture.

”It was one of those things where it’s like, ‘Oh, it’s not really Emery’s fault. It’s definitely not this guy’s fault,’” Kate Story, Emery’s aunt, told KSL.

”It’s just a tragedy.”
