Hannah Guess , 8, is recovering in the hospital after she was hit by a car when riding her bike Monday evening.
"I mean it's a kid, it's not an animal, it's not something you just scoot off the side of the road or just go on by, after you run it over," says one of the girl's family members who is outraged by the event.
Guess was riding her bike in front of her home on W. 13Th Ave. when playtime took an unexpected turn for the worst.
"She was on that side of the street over there riding her bike," says Hannah's Grandfather, Harold Wheatley Sr., "well this car came down the street and swerved over to the other side and hit her, threw her up on the hood of the car and when she came down, she hit her arm on the curb and broke it ."
"It was a blink of an eye when it happened," says her Aunt, "nothing could be done."
Skid marks left on the road where the car swerved.
Police say the driver Evans Mitchell, fled the scene.
Neighbors say he stopped his car for a moment, put something in the back seat, then drove away.
Another driver who drove up on the accident recorded Mitchell's license plate number, while witnesses described his appearance to police.
BGPD would later arrest Mitchell and charge him with a felony for leaving the scene of an accident, fail to render aid, to death or serious physical injury.
Hannah was rushed to an area hospital then soon after transported to a children's hospital in Nashville.
People on the street say drivers are reckless on this road.
"They run down here, 50 miles-per-hour, 60 miles-per-hour and never let out of it," says Wheatley.
After a few broken bones Hannah's grandfather says she is expected to make a full recovery.
"She'll be okay, Jesus Christ, will take care of her," he says.
But, other mothers on the street say they won't be letting their kids near the road anymore.
"I'm still in shock," says her Aunt.
Police say they don't believe alcohol was a factor in the accident.
Mitchell was released from the Warren County Regional Jail Tuesday on bond.
