A 12-year-old child, driving a car, hit and killed a man who was walking his dog in Houston, Texas. The tragic incident happened on Thursday afternoon near 6061 Beverly Hill Street when the girl struck a man who was walking his dog.

Questions surround the incident

Little is known about why the young girl was behind the wheel of a car. Witnesses to the tragedy report seeing responding officers giving the 12-year-old a field sobriety test, reports ABC 13 News. One witness stated, “We were wondering why they would do that test on her if she’s just like a teenager, she’s not supposed to be drunk or anything.”

The child is back home with her family. The identity of the man, who was frequently seen walking his dog in the neighborhood, has not been released.

    Why shouldn’t she be tested for drugs and alcohol? She thought it was cute to unlawfully drive a car then she should suffer the consequences of her act. A man and his dog are now dead because of a poor choice on her part. I hope she suffers some consequences, for God sake she killed someone.

      I agree. This girl AND the adult who gave her the car keys are BOTH responsible for the deaths of this man and his dog. Causing deaths IS serious and there absolutely should be jail time for the adult and juvenile hall (until the girl reaches majority and jail time after she is “of age”)…….

      This man and his dog both had their lives stolen by this negligent adult and girl. This man’s life and his dog’s life BOTH mattered and they deserve justice…….

      My family and I send our condolences to this man’s family for their losses……

      We absolutely know you both are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..
