16-year-old in coma after vehicle hit her while she crossed the street


Nearly two weeks after she was hit by a car while crossing the street, 16-year-old Malu-Lani Savage remains in a medically-induced coma.

On October 26, the 16-year-old was crossing the street around 7:30 p.m. with a friend when she was hit by a vehicle. The vehicle remained at the scene.

“Her body was pushed two blocks down the street,” Domenique Savage, Malu-Lani’s mother, told FOX 6.

It’s unclear if the 16-year-old crossed the street illegally or not. Investigators believe she may have, while her mother say Malu-Lani’s friend said they crossed on a green light, but by the time they reached the middle of the intersection the light had turned yellow.

Since the teenager was transported to a Milwaukee hospital, Domenique has not left her side.

“I’ve been here every day,” she said. “Not good. Not getting any sleep.”

Malu-Lani, who was placed in a medically-induced coma has already undergone two brain surgeries as well.

“I just want, at least, for her to walk again,” she said. “Everybody please pray for her because I want her to get out of that bed and walk again.”

Domenique set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to pay for expenses associated with her daughter’s condition.
