Spokane Valley Father Watches His Two Year Old Daughter Get Run Over and Shares His Story With KHQ

SPOKANE, WASH. - The father of a two year old Spokane Valley girl is trying to stay strong tonight for his family as his only daughter remains hospitalized in serious condition after she was run over by a drunk driver. The man police believe ran her over made his first court appearance on Monday. Police say Timmy Nguyen, 22, came around a corner at a high rate of speed and ran over the girl who was behind her father in a bicycle trailer.

It happened at the intersection of Maringo and Argonne on Saturday night, and the only reason Nguyen was arrested was because someone witnessed the accident and followed him to his apartment. Nguyen graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in criminology and is in law school at Gonzaga.

"I can't see why you would want to hurt someone like this," Danny Packard said, the father to the two year old.

Packard and his daughter Danica started their morning on Saturday picking cherries at Green Bluff, and ended it with a bike ride that took a horrible detour.

"I didn't know if I saw her head go flying off, I didn't know what the conditions were," Packard said. "I ran up to the trailer and her eyes were open because she seen me."

The one person Danica didn't see was the person who nearly killed her. As we said, Nguyen fled from the scene. On Monday the judge set his bond at $10,000 and said if he gets out he will be required to wear a sobriety bracelet.   Packard wants to remind parents to make sure their kids wear their helmets, he says that is what saved his daughter's life.
