A teenager from south Houston was severely injured following a hit-and-run incident on Nov. 6 where she was intentionally targeted and hit.
DeBreanna Hunter, 14, nearly lost her life when she was struck by a car outside of Cullen Middle School during the afternoon of Nov. 6, according to KHOU 11 News and Fox 7. A horrifying video taken on a cell phone recorded the whole incident (shown below).
“She has a broken, crushed pelvis. Broken hips, broken ribs, broken leg. Her liver is split in two. She has pins in her hips. Pins in her legs,” DeBreanna's mother, Aurelia Hunter, told Fox 7.
Aurelia said in an interview with KHOU 11 that DeBreanna was walking with friends to go pick her younger brother up from school when a large brawl involving DeBreanna, her friends, and seven other girls broke out.
After the brawl had gone on for a few minutes, a silver car plowed through a gate and hit DeBreanna.
"She did a u-turn and busts through the gates and went on the track," DeBreanna's sister, DeAsia Hunter, said of the vehicle.
The Houston Police Department is investigating the incident, and so far no arrests have been made. Police were able to clarify that the driver was a female in her mid-20s, and she faces aggravated assault charges if caught, according to KHOU 11.
“You will go to jail, and you will look us in the face, and you will have to answer to a higher judge and say you didn't even stop to apologize. ‘I'm sorry, I wasn't in my right state of mind,' nothing. You just up and left,” Aurelia told Fox 7.
“I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy," she added. "I don't care who did what. I wouldn't do that to a child.”
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help pay for DeBreanna's recovery; she currently remains in the hospital.
