A neighborhood is struggling to get past the pain following the tragic death of two little kids killed by a reckless driver.
On June 24th, life for those living on Nottingham Street changed forever. In an instant, 3-year-old Makiah Jackson and 6-year-old Michelangelo Jackson died after being hit while playing outside on their scooters.
Detroit police say 29-year-old Lorenzo Harris was trying to out run the cops in his Camaro when he turned down the street at a high rate of speed, hitting and killing the two children and injuring three others.
"It's going to be a long time before my heart with heal," said Nicole Jackson.
For those who lived through the nightmare, they say, the tire tracks on the sidewalk are a constant reminder of what happened that fateful summer night. Efforts to remove the rubber tracks haven't worked.
"I've tried bleach, graffiti remover, nothing has worked," said Joel Fowler.
7 Action News Reporter Ronnie Dahl reached out to Mayor Duggan's office. A crew will be sent out to look at the damaged sidewalks and try to remove the marks.
