ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A 7-year old Albany girl remains hospitalized with several broken bones after she was struck by a car near her school bus stop.

Tonight, her Mother wants the school system to make the stop safer.

Shy' Ann Harvey was hit by a car in the 900 block of West Gordon Avenue Friday afternoon.

She has a broken leg and ankle and has undergone surgery.

The school bus lets children off on South Harding, then turns onto West Gordon.

Harvey and other children must cross Gordon without the school bus signal warnings.

The injured child's mother wants the bus to wait until it turns onto Gordon to let children off.

Carson Harvey said "Actually let them off on the side of the road where they live so they don't have to cross that busy street. And they go through there fast."

Dougherty County School officials today said they would research the safety of that school bus stop and do what's necessary to protect the children.

Doctors told Harvey that Shy' Ann will not be able to return to school this year, but should fully recover in six months.
