    On Saturday evening, girl was walking with her mother on Hillside Ave, Jamaica. The girl walked ahead of her mom and left her behind while they were crossing the street. The daughter made it to the other side, while her mom was still walking behind. And just in a few seconds, a Nassau-County bus made a sharp turn and hit her mom before she walked all the way through.
