Tragedy for recent Somalian immigrants to Indy

According to a report in today’s Indianapolis Star, “Two Somalian children who have been in Indianapolis for a week were hit Tuesday by a car whose driver apparently fell asleep, crossed lanes and struck their bicycle, police said. A 9-year-old girl died, and her 14-year-old brother was critically injured….The children were part of a family who had been brought out of Somalia, which has been in a state of conflict and near-civil war for nearly two decades….Police said the family -- a mother, father and five children who speak no English -- had moved into the Central Avenue house a week ago.”
