Update on Pass Christian hit and run victim

Fourteen-year-old Julia Usprich suffered a variety of injuries after a hit and run in Pass Christian.

Usprich was struck by a vehicle Friday night while attending the Christmas in the Pass event. Julia’s guardians, Tracie Morgan and Daniel Cohen, tell News 25 she tries to move around a little bit when the nurses are tending to her.

A GoFundMe page is up in support of Julia. It currently has raised $12,000.

Morgan tells News 25 she’s very appreciative of the support from around the Coast and more. “I want to thank everybody for everything. My family has been calling and checking in. On the Facebook page, there’s actually people from California, Michigan, to Canada, everywhere, that are posting prayers and anything that we need on a daily basis.”
