DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -
A DeKalb County family will begin making funeral plans for a toddler Wednesday while the little girl's grandmother remains in the hospital.
Kelseyana Thrower, 3, was struck and killed and her grandmother was critically injured after they were hit while crossing a Covington Street near Paul Edwin Drive on Tuesday night.
Police say Wendy Thrower was crossing the street in a motorized wheel chair, and the child was believed to be riding on the rear of chair.
"The neighbors came and told me that my mother-in-law was hit. We went out there she was in the middle of the street, baby was on the side of the street on the curb," Thrower's stepfather, Roderick Thomas said.
Thrower was taken to Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital, where family members said she was in critical condition.
DeKalb County police said the driver of the mini van did not see the pair crossing Covington Highway.
