ANDERSON, Ind. - An Anderson mother is asking for help to find who is responsible for hitting her baby with a car and leaving the child lying in the street.
By Tuesday, 18-month-old Ambriel Aarondale was happy and recovering at home, but just last Friday she was in the hospital with a broken jaw and cuts all over her body.
Samantha Ball said her daughter Ambriel and her older brother were playing outside their house in the 1800 block of Silver Street when the little girl stepped off the sidewalk and was hit by a car.
The driver took off and Ball said her son ran to get her.
"I ran out of the house right over here, and saw my daughter laying in the road right there. When I went to go look at here I picked her up and her face was bleeding, her mouth was bleeding and she was whining a little bit so I scooped her up then I ran back got in the car and took her to community hospital ER," Ball said.
Witnesses in the neighborhood said two young women in a brown Ford truck with a camper were responsible for the incident.
Ball said she wants to prevent a similar tragedy from happening to any other child. She is putting together a petition to get a stop sign on her street, which she hopes will slow down all drivers.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Anderson police.
