Mother, Child Hit By Car

It was a chilling discovery along an eastern Kentucky road: a four-year old girl, wandering alone. Her mother was found, lying injured in a ditch.

The pair was hit by a car as they walked along U.S. 119 in Bell County, a few miles southeast of Pineville.

25-year-old Wendy Warren was seriously injured.

Police say a car ran into the two while they were walking alongside the road.

They are now asking the public to look for a car they say should have damage to the front, passenger side headlights.

We talked to Warren's family, who say they hope someone will come forward with information on this incident.

"We just hope someone will come forward. She's not like some dog that you can just leave lying on the side of the road to die," said Charles Deaton, the child's great-uncle.

The four-year-old was not seriously injured, but her mother was taken to the UT Medical Center in Knoxville where at last check, she is listed in serious condition.

    Thank you offended animal lover. I tried to post a comment already but they denied it. That really was a horrible thing to say, some people need to think before they speak! But if it wasn't for the child walking along the side of the road (or the person who stopped) her mother may have not been found alive, and the baby girl would've had to sit there and watch her mom die.

    I was so sorry to hear that this young mother passed away. I pray for her family and her young children. May God Bless you all during this difficult time. Heaven gains another angel and the world is a little darker because of this.

    May God Bless the family and victims of this cruel and selfish act. It just goes to show how coldhearted people can be. no living thing animal or human should be left on the side of the road. My prayers go out to this family.

    Thank you offended animal lover. A lack of compassion for all living things (dogs included) is what allows people to do just what the driver did.

    Quote, "She's not like some dog that you can just leave lying on the side of the road to die" With all due respect to the injured, that was a horrible thing to say.
