An 11-year-old Massachusetts girl was hit and dragged by a truck driven by an illegal immigrant, authorities said.
Police say the suspect, 35-year-old Wanderson DaSilva-Neto, struck the sixth-grader as she rode her bike Wednesday as he pulled out of his driveway at his home in Ipswich, MyFoxBoston.com reports.
DaSilva-Neto, who doesn't have a license, is in the country illegally and has an outstanding warrant for his deportation to Brazil, according to the website.
The girl, identified as Kendra Williams, of Ipswich, Mass., was reportedly riding her bike to school at the time of the incident. Her family told MyFoxBoston.com that she suffered a broken nose.
