PRAYERS FOR MY NIECE and the other person not wanting to put my niece’s name right now for obvious reasons)

I can promise she wasn’t at fault, it’s an area where a lot of homeless drug users stay in the woods by road..but right now it’s not a matter of fault, it’s a matter of the best outcome from the worst tragic event, her to keep her mind from going way dark over this, the pedestrian to live..and loves for their family, Diane that means YOU too!!! And, thank all of y’all in advance, this is gonna be hard on niecey no matter what the final results..and again, the person hit and their family…

Our thoughts are with this situation, because it is a tragic one. Hopefully, everything works out for everyone involved, but it seems like this nightmare is just beginning.
