Truck Kills 4-year-old Nairah Johnson in Walmart Parking Lot – [Glendale, AZ]

Glendale, AZ (March 3, 2021) – A 4-year-old girl, Nairah Johnson, was killed by a truck in a Walmart parking lot while walking with her family. The accident happened Wednesday, March 3rd, just before 10:30 AM, near 56th and Northern avenues.

Nairah Johnson was walking with her grandmother, mother and, 3-year-old brother Robert on the sidewalk heading into the store. Then, a 68-year-old woman in a Nissan Frontier drove up onto the sidewalk, hitting the family. As a result of the impact, Nairah Johnson was pinned under the truck.

Responders rushed the girl to the hospital with life-threatening injuries where she later died. Paramedics also transported her brother and mother to the hospital with less serious injuries. First responders treated the grandmother at the scene.
