Draper's police chief, John Eining, said the knight's helmet might have saved her life
The 11-year-old girl was in serious condition when she was taken to a local hospital.
She was wearing a helmet when Becky & # 39; s car straightened her & # 39; hit, according to Draper Police chief John Eining.
& # 39; It is very remarkable that the girl is in such good shape, very fortunate, & # 39 ;, Eining told reporters during a press conference on Friday. & # 39; We believe (the helmet) probably has something to do with the condition it is currently in. & # 39;
