Child Killed In Traffic, Aggressive Dog May Be To Blame

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.

    most people know where mean dogs are and walk the other way
    most dogs attack because they are tormented by kids.
    yes people should tie thier dogs or have them on a leash — if the girl was running from a dog – where is the dog? and why was he not hit…. Maybe it was kids playing and by not paying attention the child ran in the street… I find it strange she was the only person in that street at that time….. Goggle earth to find the real story…. and if her Daddy got enough money he can have the satilite feed to sue

      I love, love this book. I just picked it up last week to erread it. Ken Foster has another book too, called Dogs I Have Met and the People They Found. Both great books.

    I feel for this father who lost his child due to negligence on the part of the owner of this dog. What was it doing off it’s leash? I would shoot it on site and the owner probable would have been thump up-side the head for letting this dog out. People want to have animals and does not have anywhere to secure them. You live in an apartment and have these vicious animals living there with you and other people. Dogs used to be something that was only had by white folks, now i’m starting to see more people of color adopt these animals as part of their family. If you are not on a farm, living in the country and need these animals for protection, there is no need for them to be allowed in any residential areas.
