A girl was seriously injured in Washington on Thursday night after fleeing her house and running in front of a moving semi truck.
The accident happened on April 15th at around 8:40 p.m. in Colton, Washington.
According to Moscow-Pullman Daily News, officers responded to a “family disturbance” at a home south of Colton. When officers arrived, a young girl, who was a part of the disturbance, ran from the house and onto Highway 195, where she was struck by an oncoming semi truck.
