Plant City sisters struck while walking to school no longer in ICU

PLANT CITY — Police say two sisters who were struck Friday by an SUV driven by a teacher while walking to school remained hospitalized Monday but were no longer in intensive care.

Madison Dodski, 6, and her 9-year-old sister Allison, stepped into Patricia Baxter’s path on Victoria Street near Dort Street, police said. The sisters missed their bus and were walking to Wilson Elementary School when they were hit about 7:25 a.m., police said.

They were taken to Tampa General Hospital, but their injuries aren’t life threatening, said police Sgt. Tray Towles. Each child had a broken leg and lacerations, he said.

Baxter is a teacher at the school and knew at least one of the girls, police have said. She was not at fault and won’t be cited, police said.

The girls were less than one mile from Wilson Elementary, 702 W. English St., when they were hit.
