LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A little girl who suffered life-threatening injuries in a hit-and-run crash last month is already doing what she loves the most.

Nine-year-old Keeyauna Porter suffered a serious brain injury and broken bones when she was hit by a car near Broadway and Barrett Avenue in February.

Keeyauna was walking to her dance studio when the driver, later identified as 31-year-old Jessica Westbrook, hit her and kept going.

Weeks after the traumatic incident, Keeyauna returned to her dance studio and getting back into the groove of things.

She was in a wheelchair, dancing along with her F3 dance teammates.
