Girl, 9, in court for road accident
A nine-year-old girl faces a trial for causing an accident after she was knocked over by a car on a zebra crossing.
The youngster, not named for legal reasons, from Schaffhausen in Switzerland was slightly injured after she was hit by the car while crossing the road with her mum and younger sister.
The car driver claims the young girl ran out from behind a bus and straight into his vehicle, and was therefore a danger to him and other motorists.
She is now being hauled up in front of the Schaffhausen youth court where she could face a fine.
A spokesman for the public prosecutor's office which deals with minors said it was usual to deal with children involved in road accidents in this manner, as it shows them what they did wrong and prevents them from being involved in accidents in the future.
