TAMPA, Florida -- A 6-year-old girl is recovering at Tampa General Hospital after family members say she was hit by an "out of control speeding motorist" while playing in her front yard.

The victim, identified by family members as Alondra Martinez, was rushed by ambulance to Tampa General with head injuries after the car, traveling around 55 miles an hour, hit the child front yard of her home at 2421 70th Street South in the Clair Mel area of Tampa.

Tire tracks could be seen leaving the roadway, into Alondra's front yard then swerving back across the street before taking out several small trees.

No word yet on if any charges will be filed.
