homicide scene Child Killed In Traffic, Aggressive Dog May Be To Blame

A father is grieving after his little girl was killed on her way to school. Now he is calling for stronger control over neighborhood animals.

A 14-year-old student is dead after being hit by a car on her way to school. The incident happened on Jonesboro road near McDonough Square. Witnesses say the victim Miracle Parham may have been backing away from an aggressive dog, when she ran into the middle of the street and was hit by a car. Her father Winston Williams says his child is dead because people did not do their jobs.

Police questioned the owner of the dog, but she declined to comment.  A woman claims a dog chased her daughter to school earlier this week. She is now driving her child to school.
