MCDONOUGH, Ga. — Henry County police say a 14-year-old girl was reportedly trying to get away from an aggressive dog when she was hit by a car and killed in McDonough.
Maj. Jason Bolton says Henry County High School student Miracle Parham was struck by a Saturn on Jonesboro Road this morning. Bolton says the girl was walking to her school bus stop when the dog began approaching her aggressively, prompting her to back up into the street.
Bolton says witnesses described the dog as a pit bull. He says police are trying to determine who owns the dog. He says the driver of the car was taken to a hospital with what appear to be minor injuries.
