Gladis Fornwalt (wearing dress) is comforted after she struck a 3-year-old girl with her car earlier this morning while the mother of the child holds her head in her hands (right) as paramedics stabilize the child on the sidewalk behind them. Fornwalt was driving a white Toyota sedan heading east on Second Street about 9 a.m. According to reports, the child was struck and partially under Fornwalt’s car when the child’s mother removed the young girl to the sidewalk in front of the dance studio. The child was transported to Southwest Medical Center with her mother. The child was breathing and had tire marks on her arm and back. According to a Liberal Police Department press release at 10:54 a.m. today, the child was then life flighted to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita for further treatment. In the course of the investigation, police officers re-enacted the scene by having a young boy run out in the street from the front of a thrift store about 40 feet away from where Fornwalt’s car came to a stop. There was no crosswalk where the child allegedly entered the street in the middle of the block. Daily Leader photo/Earl Watt
