Girl, 7, killed on interstate after walking away from crash

DeSandra Thomas

A 7-year-old MI girl is dead after trying to cross the street to get help for her father, who was reportedly involved in a drunk driving crash on early Sunday morning.

The scope of the tragedy took some time to become clear as police tried to piece together what appeared to be separate incidents but in reality were three connected reports - a drunken driving crash, a girl in need of help and a woman who thought she hit a pedestrian with her vehicle.

The girls father was arrested as his accident involved alcohol, the state police reported. "She died trying to help her father".

The man was knocked unconscious, so the little girl - thinking her father had died - texted 911 asking for help, police said.

The girl, who was not identified, was texting 911 for help when she was hit by a auto, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"I'm not mourning her", Burts said.

Dessandra Thomas was killed on the I-94 in Romulus, Michigan, Sunday, after her father lost control of his auto, struck another vehicle parked on the side of the road, and crashed into some fencing. Police were unable to locate Thomas even after pinging the cellphone.

Troopers arrived at eastbound I-94 and Inkster Road in response to a driver who believed she had hit a person.

Burts and her daughter's father parted ways amicably years ago, and Burts said that DeSandra and her father had been attending a baby shower on Sunday evening. "She was so helpful", her mother, Sandria Burts, told WJBK.

"It's straight emptiness. We are in shock but I know God is good and he is the only one that's going to be able to bring me and my family through this", Sandria said.

The victim's mother told WXYZ she was devastated over her daughter's death. She attempted to call 911 for help.

'It's a void that will never be filled, ' she said of her loss. A poor lady that was driving down 94, that will have to live with the fact that she struck a child for the rest of her life, ' Shaw said.
