From her daughter's bedside, the mother of a two year old hit by a truck at a Sikeston gas station talks about her little girl's recovery.
"It's been really hard," said Crystal Marcum.
This as the woman accused of hitting two year old Makayla Brown, and leaving the scene remains in the Scott County Jail.
Police say 49-year-old Althea Sutton hit Makayla Brown as the little girl was walking out of Fas Gas in Sikeston with a babysitter.
Police say Sutton left the scene before they arrived.
It happened in Sikeston last Sunday afternoon. Sutton was later found at her home in Sikeston, arrested, and charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
Now, Makayla remains in St. Louis Children's Hospital where she's been for a week now.
"I got the call and I don't even remember getting to the gas station," said Marcum.
Marcum says her daughter remember the incident well.
