A two-year-old child was flown to Chapel Hill Wednesday after the car she was in was hit by a pick-up truck. The accident happened at 12th and Queen streets in downtown Wilmington. Police said that a full size pick up truck collided with a PT Cruiser that was carrying the child. Two-year-old Taneya Harrison was rushed to New Hanover Regional, and then Chapel Hill. Taneya's mother Latrice said Thursday morning her daughter was in stable condition. Latrice Harrison was driving the PT Cruiser when the truck crashed into it. The little girl was thrown forward, and hit her head on the dashboard. Harrison says her daughter was not in a carseat, but was strapped into a seat belt. "I had just picked her up right here on Castle," Harrison said. "I was going around the corner to drop her off, because I was in the process of moving. There was me and three other people in the car and I didn't think nothing of it, that it would happen right so close to the house." Harrison went on to say that she will always put Taneya in a child car seat in the future. The driver of the truck was not injured. No charges have been filed in the accident.
