While Julia Grace Wallace was lying in the hospital, her neighbors and colleagues came out to pray for the recovery of the seventh grader.
“No parent should have to deal with it,” said Jessica C. Bridge, a friend of the family.
On Tuesday morning, the 12-year-old was hit by a car while crossing the street near Roseville Middle School. There was no sentinel crossing, and the intersection of Martin Rd and Parkman Street is not a four-way stop.
“I don’t know why there was absolutely nowhere for these kids to cross safely to get to school,” Seabridge said.
Samuel McGrath and Julia Grace are classmates, and he said he should be here.
“I sat to the right of my desk one and was like dang, I don’t have a pencil because she always lent you one,” McGrath said.
Julia Grace was seriously injured and has a brain injury.
“It amazes me to know that there are so many good people out there when there are so many bad people in the world right now,” said Julian Deblawi. “The family is overwhelmed with support and cannot thank everyone enough.”
