What The Hell??? One-Time Hits Teen Girl With Jaywalking Ticket For The Accident That Put Her In A Coma

- By Bossip Staff

As if the idea of giving a thirteen-year-old a traffic citation wasn’t bad enough…

A 13-year-old girl is recovering after being hit by a car. The accident happened Tuesday afternoon and the girl’s mother says she is in a medically induced coma. But while at the hospital, her mother was given a ticket because her daughter was jaywalking.

The accident happened at Durango and Rochelle. Takara Davis was walking home from school when she was hit. Police won’t speak about the case, saying it’s an ongoing investigation, but witnesses say the teen was lagging behind friends when she was crossing the street.

“Every time they come in, they say that the bleeding hasn’t stopped on the brain. She’s got no feeling or movement on her left side at all,” said the Davis’ mother Kellie Obong.

Davis is an 8th grader at Lawrence Junior High School, which is only a few blocks away from where the accident took place. Davis was issued a jaywalking citation. It was handed to her mother at the hospital.

“He said, ‘Takara was jaywalking. She has got to go to court on March 6th,'” said Obong. “If she was jaywalking, then she was jaywalking. But maybe you give it to me at a later time. Don’t give it to me when they are rushing her into the operating room.”

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department issued a statement about how the citation was issued, saying, “Our officers conduct themselves in a professional and compassionate way. We wouldn’t do anything deliberately insensitive.”

SMH. Who exactly does that serve or protect? These cops ain’t sh*t.

  • that's some BS!

    Trick azz trying to justify some mess for the insurance company. Well it wont work the driver hit a pedestria!

    • YEAISAIDIT

      The officers were insensitive where the ticket is concerned but the law is the law.

      If she was jaywalking & the driver didn’t have a chance to avoid the collision they cannot be at fault.

  • Dr Black

    Of course they are crackers. Black people certainly do not have it in them to up hold the law, even if it means to slap a mom in the face with a wrench, by handing her a traffic ticket stemming from an accident involving her criticle listed daughter.

    Like my people have been saying for years. MOST white people are going to bust hell wide open.

    I GUESS IF SHE SURVIVED A PLANE CRASH THEY WOULDVE CHARGED HER WIT LITTERIN.

    well surely they are deliberately insensitive. i thought pedestrians were always right for the most part. ok she was jaywalking who doesnt. how fast was this motherfcker going to put this child in a coma. probably one of those people that make a turn extra fast into a street instead of doing it slowly with precaution.

    *on a side note b4 i read the article and how old she was i thought she was like 17 or somewhere up there.*

      its all those hormones in the milk in chicken.

  • Mrs. Rance

    While I understand they needed to protect the driver by giving the ticket, they could have done it at a better time. To the person above me, u know not what u speak. If u get hit while jaywalking u are azzed out. The driver could even go after u for damages to the car. If they file with insurance to get the car fixed the insurance company is definately coming for that azz.

  • REAL4REAL

    So if the baby doesn’t make it, the parents are paying a ticket on top of grieving for losing their child? To all of you insensitive pr!cks that defend the police on this situation, we all know that tickets are judgement calls. If you disagree check it out, speed limit says 65 that is the law cut and dry. They don’t ticket the dude going 69 which is still illegal, they wait to get the dummy going 10-20 over because it’s a larger residual. In light of the baby’s medical condition the officer’s could have written it up without a liability citation d!ckheads!!!

  • Angel

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    whether she was jaywalking or not i think a coma is punishment enough and she didn’t even deserve that! i would’ve torn it up and thrown it right back at them…

  • severine

    The cops were wrong for issuing the poor girl a ticket. As if the mother doesn’t have enough to worry about.

    And who cares whether or not the girl was jaywalking- as drivers in protective metal and steel vehicles we should ALWAYS be on the defensive when it comes to pedestrians, because they have nothing to protect them from idiot driving moves like that dumb driver pulled. Hoping this poor kid makes a full recovery…

  • Mamacita

    i agree 100%

  • Yeti

    I hope these cops catch a bullet sometime soon.

  • TOOMUCH

    Nomatter who is wrong or right about the law, a 13 year old child is laying up in the hospital in a coma. There are so many LOW down DIRTY people in this world. Her being given a ticket it wrong on so many levels. DAMN 2011 here we go with no change in site.

    I WONDER IF SHE DIES WHAT WILL THE OFFICER SAY AND WILL THEY CHARGE THE PERSON WHO HIT OR KILLED HER??? I HOPE SHE DOES SURVIVED BUT IM JUST SAYING

  • wHAT EVER

    If she dies the driver isn’t at fault because she was jaywalking. The driver has to live with the fact that they hit someone. Parents teach your kids how to cross the street a human is no match to a car.

  • chickieboo

    WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY POSTS?

  • chickieboo

    WILL A WARRANT BE ISSUED FOR HER ARREST IF SHE CANNOT MAKE HER UPCOMING COURT DATE. I MEAN THE GIRL IS IN A COMA AND IT WILL TAKE MONTHS TO HEAL. I KNOW THAT THE LAW IS THE LAW BUT THIS IS TAKING THINGS TO FAR. I PRAY FOR HER RECOVERY

  • really?

    @chickie, no they won’t arrest her. they may not even make the parents pay it. the ticket will likely serve as a formality to prove the driver isn’t at fault.

  • caper

    SHE IS NOT A SHEEN OR LAST NAME GIBSON. this is why she got a ticket issused but mark this down she is going to be alright sooner than you think. i have this on good authority. the devil is just protecting the driver.
