A 3-year-old Providence girl who was struck by a dirt bike has had multiple surgeries since she was taken to the hospital, family members said Thursday.
The family said the girl has had three surgeries so far. They said her skull, eye and chest were injured in the crash Wednesday night. She was in critical condition at Hasbro Children's Hospital.
Her family said the little girl was on the sidewalk on Gladstone Street when a dirt bike operator came the wrong way down the one-way street and hit her. Many children, including the toddler's cousins and family members, witnessed the accident.
Witnesses described the driver as a man in his late 20s. They said he didn't stop to help the girl.
Neighbors told NBC 10 that motorcyclists speed down the street all the time despite children-at-play signs. One neighbor said sometimes the drivers race each other.
Providence police asked anyone with information about the crash to call them at 401-272-3121.
23 Kenney Drive
