IN a touching move � the mother of a girl ran over at a Madora Bay intersection yesterday � has reached out to the driver of the car via social media.
Rebecca Ainsworth posted on a Mandurah community Facebook page last night to reassure the community her 11-year-old daughter is ok.
Her daughter Ebony was struck by a car on Mandurah Road, near Madora Beach Road, after school yesterday.
She was crossing the road, when a car allegedly doing 70km/h hit her.
�To those children and drivers who witnessed it today (Tuesday), I also hope you are ok as I couldn�t imagine what you would be going through seeing it,� Ms Ainsworth said.
�Thank you to all those who helped Ebony- my baby girl is lucky to be here.
�The police and emergency services were once again amazing.�
Ms Ainsworth told the Mandurah Coastal Times that she knew Ebony would be ok.
�She came out better than what could have been,� she said.
�It�s a long road, but there are so many people traumatised by this and I wanted the driver to know she is ok.
�I know I�d be beside myself worrying if I were a witness in that position, so I reached out.�
Her daughter was �banged up head to toe� and remained sedated at Princess Margaret Hospital last night.
She had surgery today to clean and stitch her wounds.
Ms Ainsworth said she is �a tough cookie�.
Police are investigating the accident.
