It was just last week that 8-year-old, Kamari was struck by a car in Detroit while at an ice cream truck. The incident happened on Robson Street, which is near the intersection of Greenfield Road and Fenkell Street on Detroit’s west side. According to police, the driver failed to stop at the ice cream truck’s stop sign, which was extended with blinking red lights and the police said the impact sent Kamari airborne and knocked her out of her shoes.

On Sunday authorities charged two people for the hit and run. Wayne County prosecutor’s spokeswoman Maria Miller says 23-year-old Courtney Shields is charged with reckless driving and failing to stop at an injury accident, and 19-year-old Leonard Crosby is charged with being an accessory after the fact.
