The girl, her sibling and her grandmother were pushing the car from behind as her mother tried to drive, said Denell Boyd, spokeswoman with Cobb Fire & Emergency Services.
“When they got out and pushed there was another car that came over the hill too fast, and there was still a good bit of ice, and they couldn’t stop,” Boyd said. “She was kind of stuck between the two cars, and the (left) leg was cut off from the knee down.”
The girl’s 14-year-old sibling was able to avoid being hit and was not injured.
The girl was flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston where doctors were said to be working to re-attach the girl’s leg.
Cobb Police Sgt. Dana Pierce said he was not aware if any charges could be pending in the incident or whether it would be ruled purely accidental.
