OAKRIDGE, Ore. - Autumn Grilho still can't believe what happened.
"It kind of felt like a dream, kind of," she said. "You know, like none of this was actually happening."
The 13-year-old Oakridge resident, her sister Summer and a friend were crossing Highway 58 around 7 p.m. Sunday when they were hit by a car.
"I remember seeing the hood of the car, my head bounced off the windshield. I remember flying in the air and hitting my head on the curb."
Their mother Stefanie Butler was just down the road when it happened.
"All of the sudden I see these lights going down and they all stopped here," Butler said. "And my children were laying, both of them, one by the telephone pole, one by the light."
Both girls were rushed to the hospital with head and foot injuries.
Butler said she is frustrated that there aren't more crosswalks across busy Hwy 58. She said that she thinks if there were more places to cross safely that accidents like this could be prevented.
"There's only one crosswalk on this road and that is up at Ray's Market which is probably a good quarter mile maybe even a mile up on top of the hill up there." said Butler.
As a result, she said, most people take a chance crossing Hwy 58 wherever they are, rather than using the crosswalk.
According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, between 2002 and 2011 only one pedestrian crash was reported on this stretch of road.
Still, Butler wants to see more designated areas to cross.
"There needs to be a safe place for them to do that," she said. "This is not going to be the first or probably the last if there's no safe place for them to cross."
The officer investigating the crash for the Oakridge Police Department was not immediately available Monday afternoon for comment on the crash.
