A young child, who was rushed to Vanderbilt Medical Center by DeKalb EMS Thursday evening after being hit by a vehicle, has been released from the hospital and is going to be okay.
Buddie Robinson, father of three year old Zeva Robinson, told WJLE Friday evening that his daughter suffered only superficial wounds and no internal injuries as a result of the accident. Robinson said he and his wife Donna want to thank everyone for their concern and prayers.
911 received a call at 6:15 p.m. Thursday that a three year old child had been hit by a car in the parking lot of the Bill Page Ballpark in Smithville.
Smithville Police said the child was playing near a gravel pile outside the fence in the parking lot when a 17 year old Rock Island girl, who was backing out of her parking spot in a 1987 Ford Probe, didn't see the youngster and accidentally struck her.
Robinson said Zeva was first taken by EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital and then transported to Vanderbilt.
