Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Good news on the story about the little girl struck by a vehicle on Halloween.
A family friend of the injured six-year-old said the little girl has reached a milestone. She reached out to her mother on Thursday.
The friend told Action News that Brazyl Ward, who has been fighting for her life the last week, grabbed her mother's hand at the hospital.
Doctors said Brazyl is not awake, but appears to be improving.
Brazyl was struck by a hit and run driver while trick or treating. That driver still has not come forward.
