Harris writes that the driver who hit her daughter was driving a lavatory truck. An audio message over the video appears to urge lavatory workers to watch their speed and pay attention to their surroundings.

“Despite being visible to airplanes in the sky, her orange vest and wands were somehow not visible to the driver,” Harris wrote.

Davis suffered multiple broken bones in her face, a fractured skull and a serious concussion, according to her mother.

“I would not wish this on any mother, and I thank God for keeping my baby girl with me,” Harris wrote. “I am a mother of four daughters and couldn’t imagine life without each of them.”

The Atlanta Police Department is investigating the incident. The airport referred any questions to APD.
