Young Girl Struck by Car in Chase Speaks Out

Posted: Updated:
What started out as a typical Friday night for Cassidy Wall and her little sister Zmyiah quickly turned dangerous.

"Every time cars come past me when I'm at home, I just go in the house," said Cassidy.  "Right now, I'm scared of cars because of what just happened to me on Friday night."

The eight-year-old girl was riding her scooter just outside of her home on East 29th and German Streets, when a  car fleeing from police hit a parked car, which then crashed into her.  The entire incident was captured on security video.

"I fell and flew in the air, and I landed on my head." said Cassidy.

Cassidy's five-year-old sister Zmyiah was on the steps.  She was able to get out of the way just in time.

 "The car crashed in and then she (Cassidy) got hit," said Zmyiah.  "She flew all the way up in the sky and fell on her head."

Cassidy suffered a concussion in the crash.  Her little sister received some bumps and bruises. But the entire family, is traumatized by the incident.

 "I was terrified...I still am terrified," said Cassidy's father Delorean Wall.  "As a father, you don't want that to happen to your children.  It's crazy."

Two men have been charged in connection to this crash.  Angelo Moore, 18,  faces a number of charges including attempting to elude police, aggravated assault by vehicle, and possession of marijuana.  Brandon Carlson faces drug and weapons charges.
