Girl in Coma Gets Jaywalking Ticket Takara Davis' mom handed citation as daughter rushed to surgery By Rob Quinn, Newser Staff Posted Jan 7, 2011 2:21 AM CST Updated Jan 7, 2011 5:00 AM CST 14 comments Comments Takara Davis, 13, is in a medically induced coma because of bleeding on the brain. (Takara Davis) (Newser) – Getting hit by a car apparently isn't punishment enough for jaywalking in Las Vegas. After 13-year-old Takara Davis was struck by a car while walking home from school earlier this week, police handed her mother a jaywalking citation as her daughter was being rushed to emergency surgery. The 8th-grader remains in a medically-induced coma. "He said, 'Takara was jaywalking. She has got to go to court on March 6th,'" her mother told 8 News. "If she was jaywalking, then she was jaywalking. But maybe you give it to me at a later time. Don't give it to me when they are rushing her into the operating room." A police spokesman said officers "conduct themselves in a professional and compassionate way" and "wouldn't do anything deliberately insensitive."
