YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP/WWJ) – Authorities say a 14-year-old Michigan girl “is lucky to be alive” as she remains in critical condition after being struck by two vehicles and dragged nearly two miles while trick-or-treating on Halloween.

The Ann Arbor News reports the girl has been in the hospital since the Saturday night accident in Washtenaw County’s Ypsilanti Township.

Pittsfield Deputy Police Chief Gordy Schick said Monday she remains in critical condition.

Schick said a 33-year-man called 911 after initially hitting the girl. A second vehicle then struck the girl and dragged her along the roadway before she became dislodged. Schick said the girl was beneath the second vehicle.

A motorist behind the second vehicle told police he noticed something being dragged but thought it was a Halloween prank or trapped animal.

That driver had to slam on his brakes after the girl came free of the car. He and a passing sheriff’s deputy helped the girl until paramedics arrived.

Schick says the investigation continues and many details of the crash need to be verified.

It was dark and raining at the time the girl was hit. She was crossing a road, but not in a crosswalk, and was wearing dark clothing.

Ypsilanti Community Schools have made counselors and administrators available to students and families.

“We urge our families to seek emotional support if their child has been affected by this incident and ask for everyone to respect the family’s wishes for privacy as they go through this difficult time,” reads a post on the district’s Facebook page. “YCS will only share information as they request us to do so.”

Authorities haven’t released the identity of the ninth-grader.
