A 7-year-old girl is dead after being hit by a car in Cincinnati on Tuesday afternoon. It happened just after noon on the 3600 block on Vine Street in the Avondale neighborhood. According to police, two young girls – both seven – ran into Vine Street and crossed the path of an oncoming Toyota Camry. Both girls were hit by the vehicle. “At first I thought it was a car collision. It was that loud,” said a neighbor who did not want to be identified. I did not know, what I should do. A lot of people out here didn’t know what to do. “Neighbors said several Witnesses ran to help the children, including at least one who gave CPR to the young girl who appeared unconscious. She was taken to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. The second girl was also taken to the children’s hospital, but is said to survive. “Several other passers-by stopped and, as I understood it, helped the children,” said Lt. Steve Saunders of the Cincinnati Police Department. “We would like to thank the citizens who did this and took great care of the injured children.” Authorities say the girls were not on a zebra crossing when they were beaten. Their names were not published. The driver of the Toyota, a 17-year-old boy, was unharmed. He stayed at the scene of the accident and works with the police. All witnesses to the crash are requested to call the Cincinnati Police Department Transportation Unit at 513-352-2514.
