    I worked around the block and heard the firetrucks and knew something bad happened. The ladie driving is as nice as they come and I work with her. You would not belive the things she has seen 2 deaths before this. I feel bad for the little boys family and keeping everyone in my prayers

    This accident is tragic. I feel for both the family of the boy and the driver. My prayers and best wishes to the families involved.

    Tragedy, all the way around. The driver, unfortunately, will have to live with this the rest of his life. I can't imagine how terrible he/she must feel. Sounds like just a horrible, horrible accident.
