According to a Go Fund Me page, Maeve Elizabeth Field turned five years old on April 1 and is alert and awake.

However, her left arm and right leg had to be amputated due to the damage from the accident, while her left eye was also hurt beyond repair.

Police say Maeve was hit by a vehicle that suddenly accelerated in reverse on Main Street as her family left the local hardware store on Saturday, March 9.

Her 13-year-old brother was also injured but not as seriously.

The vehicle was being driven by an 80-year-old woman from Norfolk County.
