Young sisters struck by hit-and-run driver while waiting for school bus in Liberty County

DAYTON, TX (KTRK) -- Two girls were hit by a car while waiting for the bus near their home.

Kaylee, Alexis and Brooklyn never made it to their Dayton elementary school.

Their grandmother, Kimberly Shealy, said they were waiting for the bus at the corner of CR 641 and CR 642 Tuesday morning before dawn. A car drove by first and hit two of the girls.

"I can't imagine not ever seeing my grandchildren again because someone was careless and didn't take the time to make a proper turn," Shealy said.

Nine-year-old Kaylee has a broken leg and will likely need surgery. Her younger sister Alexis has a sprained ankle and bruises all over her body. Six-year-old Brooklyn was not injured.

"Please don't die is what she's screaming to her sisters," Shealy said. "She's gonna see this for the rest of her life. The rest of their lives these kids are gonna have that fear."

The car that hit the children never stopped. Shealy said another car drove by, too. That driver rolled down the window, saw the children and kept driving.

"I want them to look me in my eye and tell me my grandkids weren't worth them stopping for," Shealy said.

Shealy is offering a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of the driver responsible for hitting her grandchildren.

The Liberty County Sheriff's Office is investigating the hit-and-run accident. They have not released names of any suspects. Contact their office if you have any information.
