Pray for this Family: 6-Year-Old S.C. Girl Run Over by Truck and Killed while Holding Grandmother’s Hand Waiting for School Bus

A 6-year-old girl was struck and killed by a truck as she waited for her school bus to arrive with her grandmother.

The incident occurred on Feb. 28 at approximately 6:30 a.m. in Lancaster County, South Carolina, when Beatrice Mayson was accompanying her 6-year old granddaughter Jerrnia Horne while they were both waiting for the school bus to pick Jerrnia up – a routine they did every day, according to ABC News’ Charlotte affiliate WSOC.

It was then that authorities say a 39-year-old woman driving a truck on Kershaw Camden Highway hit Jerrnia while she was holding her grandmother’s hand.

“We were on the sidewalk. Then, I saw the black truck coming,” Mayson told WSOC. “I tried calling her, ‘Jerrnia! Jerrnia!’ (but) I can’t hear no voice.”
