Child hit by car needs surgery

By Ed Brock

One of three children hit by a car earlier this week is still recovering in the hospital.

Katrayia Davis, 14, of Jonesboro will require surgery to place a tissue graft over a piece of exposed anklebone, said Davis' mother Keecha Davis.

On Sunday around 7:30 p.m. Davis and two other girls, 15-year-old Trakita Cray and 14-year-old Shoala Keyron, were crossing Pointe South Parkway near Thomas Road and Flint River Road when the accident occurred, according to a Clayton County police report. The driver of the car that hit them, 36-year-old Sharrolyn Mia Clarx of College Park, said the sun was in her eyes so she couldn't see the girls.

Clarx and a witness also said that Clarx had the green light for the intersection she was approaching and the girls did not look her way. The girls told police they didn't see Clarx.

All of the girls were bleeding from their legs and complained of back and leg pain.

Clarx was not charged in the case.
