Ronda and Matt Smith were stuck in a traffic jam last June in Greenwich, unaware that a young girl had been hit by a dump truck up ahead. The Delphi couple would help the girl in a big way months later.
After waiting a while in the backup, the Smiths, of Delphi, found another route to the Greenwich cemetery, where they were heading to carve an angel for decoration.
Later that June day, the curious couple called the volunteer fire department to learn the cause of the traffic delay. The Smiths were told a little girl had been hit while crossing Greenwich's Main Street, and a week later found out it was Kiley Baker the 9-year-old girl who was hit by a dump truck in Greenwich, and had to have her leg amputated just below the knee.
At the time, it was just another name to the Smiths; they didn't know Kiley, though their daughter, Savanna, is in the same grade with her at South Central Elementary.
