WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Pamela Bell is speaking out about driving safely in her neighborhood after a car hit her two daughters while they were riding a scooter.

The two girls were pinned under the car until emergency crews pulled them out. Bell said Ivory and Julia are recovering at New Hanover Regional Medical Center with a few broken bones but she is warning drivers to slow down near the playground on Eighth and Campbell Streets.

"Please," Bell pleaded. "...keeping your eyes on the road is very very important. I am thankful that my children survived the way that they did, but it could have been someone else."

She is asking that the City of Wilmington considers putting a "Children at Play" sign or speed bumps near the playground so drivers are aware.
