  • The driver shouldl be charged with attempted manslaughter


  • How terrible !!
    Hope the girl recovers well !
    The driver should be charged heavily indeed and lose her license never to get it back again.


  • I saw this on the news and hope the little girl will make a full recovery.


  • Poor little girl.I hope she will be ok


  • I hope this child makes a full recovery, and I hope the driver goes to jail for a long, long time.


  • The girl is very lucky she didn’t sustain more injuries.
    At 6 years old I never let my children cross a road alone or in a shopping centre carpark. They had to have their hands held.
    I wish there was a way that cars will not start at all if the driver has drunk alcohol enough for a system in the car to pick it up. We need more RBT Units.


  • Terrible! Poor little girl! I really can’t stand people that drink and drive!!
