A Robertson County mother is asking her daughter's elementary school to fix its parking lot after her little girl fell and injured herself.

Marinda Bratton's daughter, Alana, is a fourth grade student at Greenbrier Elementary.

According to Bratton, a section of uneven, broken pavement in the drop-off lane caused Alana to fall on her way into school last Friday.

She suffered cuts and scratches on her face, elbow and knee.

Bratton says she's witnessed other children trip in the same area near the wheelchair ramp outside the front of the school.

She believes the pavement needs to be fixed to prevent other kids from falling.

“I think they need to keep in mind the kid's safety when it comes to the parking area, especially considering it's the car rider drop off and pick up area,” Bratton told Nashville's News 2. “If it's not in their budget to repave it they need to come up with some other solution.”

Robertson County School leaders say they plan to look into the situation.
