Woman accused of hitting, killing 8-year-old Henry County girl appears in court

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — The woman who police say hit and killed an eight-year-old girl while she was getting on a school bus in Henry County last week appeared in court Monday morning.

Adalynn Pierce, of Henry County, was killed Thursday after 25-year-old Kaylee Kristee Andre passed a school bus, with its stop sign out, and hit her as she attempted to get on the bus on Jackson Lake Road.

Authorities arrested 25-year-old Kaylee Kristee Andre and charged her with homicide by vehicle, failure to stop for a school bus loading and unloading and failure to exercise due care.

On Monday, a judge set bail for Andre at $20,000.

Representatives with the non-profit “Caring For a Cause” say they have partnered with a funeral home who will waive all fees to help Adalynn family with funeral expenses.

Adalynn was a student at Rock Springs Elementary School.
