(FOX NEWS) - While many people are worrying about Thanksgiving Day plans, one Plano family is focused on the recovery of their 7-year-old girl.
Liberty Utley was on a field trip at the Dallas Zoo, Tuesday, hours before her dad picked her up from school to take her to get ice cream, with her 5-year-old sister, Abby.
Plano Police say the three of them were leaving the Braum's off Parker and Custer in Plano around 3:30 P.M. when their father slowed his Mazda-3 to avoid hitting a pedestrian. At that moment, police say a Dodge Ram truck rear-ended them.
Liberty is now in a medically induced coma. Her father; Michael, mother; Shannon, and younger sister took time Saturday to be at a prayer service for Liberty, outside her school.
