6-Year-Old Salisbury Girl Allegedly Hit By Car, Mother Demands Justice

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury child is recovering after a car allegedly hit her last Wednesday.

Her mother and neighbors not only want answers, they want action.

Six-year-old Princess Seeney is healing. Although her injuries aren't life threatening, she will be dealing with the scars for quite some time. Witnesses who allegedly saw a car hit this little girl, say it happened right in front of her home on Naylor Street.

Her mother Delana Clark says she thought her "baby was dead." Clark says her daughter received 22 stitches from her nose down her cheek.

"If I was out here by myself, [the driver] probably would have been gone," said Clark.

A number of neighbors say they saw the collision, too. Witnesses say they saw a female driver speeding down Naylor Street before reportedly hitting the child.
    
"When the little girl got out the bus, the lady came up from the side and hit the little girl," said Doemetris Henry.

Salisbury Police responded to the emergency call and tells 47 ABC they are investigating. But they could not confirm that a hit-and-run took place. Police say no charges were filed or arrests made in this case. Despite all this, neighbors and Clark say the bigger problem is the road itself.

"Cars fly by here," said John Gilbert, a neighbor to Clark.

Naylor Street is a narrow stretch of roadway, about a half a mile connecting Route 13 to Route 50. 47 ABC filmed a number of vehicles zipping past us down this street Wednesday afternoon. But there are no speed limit signs anywhere along this road. We drove up and down and checked. The only sign: no parking.

"It's not safe, it's not safe for them or nobody else's kids," said Clark.

Clark wants the city to do something about it before what allegedly happened to her child, happens again.
     
"It needs to be a sign or something out here, that's the only way the law can be enforced I feel like," said Clark. "I just want justice for my baby that's all."

47 ABC reached out to the city of Salisbury on Wednesday to ask about the signs on Naylor Street and why there aren't any that might help alert traffic to children in the area?

Mayor Jim Ireton reached out to 47 ABC and says he is working to get those answers.
