LAS VEGAS -- The family of a little girl struck by a hit-and-run driver on Halloween got a special holiday surprise.
The Ward family was leaving a church event when a speeding driver hit Brazyl Ward as she crossed the street. She was in a coma for several weeks. She has made some improvement and her condition was recently downgraded to serious, but she is unable to speak.
The Ward family has spent the last two months in the hospital -- around the clock -- caring for their daughter. They were anticipating a tough holiday, but Thursday, they received a special delivery from some elves and Santa.
The Clark County Fire Department rolled out a year's worth of donations, in presents. Little Brazyl may be in the hospital, but her sister Berlyn and her brother Brandon Junior were very excited.
Firefighters donated $5 from each paycheck they received over the past year and put it into a fund to pay for the gifts.
