Most fatal motor vehicle accidents strike an emotional chord due to the sheer loss of human life. However, there are some incidents that seem to take on an elevated tone of disturbance, and the June 29 death of 34-year-old Sajida Hussaini might be one of those instances.
Hussaini’s story is one that many can relate to. She left her native Afghanistan to come to the United States in hopes of creating a better life for her and her family. The American dream was within her and her husband’s sights, as the latter was working as a driver in Texas, while the mother of five attempted to keep things on the right track in Georgia.
Hussaini’s eldest daughter was receiving medical attention at a nearby hospital, and her mother and little brother were determined to visit her. Together with her nine-year-old son, the pregnant 34-year-old crossed the street after exiting an Uber near Hewatt Road when the mother was struck by a car. Hussaini and the unborn child she was carrying were confirmed dead at the scene. The young boy was not injured in the incident.
The driver of the car that struck Hussaini remained on the scene to speak with the authorities.
This tragic story is resonating with a lot of people who are looking to help the Hussaini family pick up the pieces. Her husband has since returned to Georgia in the aftermath of his wife’s death. A GoFundMe page was set up to contribute to the broken family’s cause, and has reportedly eclipsed $31,000 in donations.
