[Warning: disturbing footage] Hancock County deputy patrol car strikes girl on bike

A seven-year-old girl, injured in a bike accident, is recovering today after being struck by a Hancock County sheriff’s K-9 car. Sheriff Ricky Adam released video of the incident today. The footage may be disturbing to some.

This incident happened on Wednesday on West Hinds Street in Bayside Park. The girl’s injuries aren’t believed to be life-threatening, but the victim’s mother, Sabrina Nixon, says this accident could have been prevented.

Nixon says the deputy was speeding when they hit her child. Sheriff Adam disputed Nixon’s claims and released the dash cam footage, saying the accident was “unavoidable.”
