    Wow just finished the article.


    I know we are supposed to but I doubt many of us check the vehicle before we hop in and go.

    At that time at night I'm sure all the driver wanted to do was get done and go home. Ashame. Both families will never be the same.

    But I'd like to know why a 5 year was in the street with no parents watching him.

    Scottyhawk What is it? A brown box. Duh

    Still no official PCM on it, kind of sorta talked about it but sups say no official word. Leave a rut in someone's yard though watch out, pcms and videos out the wazoo

    Because stuff like this they would rather cover up.

    My manager said because of the coming litigation. Is why there aren't any further details. I do ck each time I walk back. If I see a kid at the delivery. Make a count of how many. Walk as far as I need too

    The driver is not at fault. The thread headline should read: Unsupervised Young Child Killed In Accident.

    God, this is horrible. I can see checking behind your vehicle, but how often does anyone look under it if there's no sound or other sign that anything is there? I know UPS doesn't say to check there.

    My heart and thoughts go out to the boy's family as well as the driver, who will live with this for the rest his life.

    I absolutely don't want to blame the driver, this could have happened to ANYONE. The Integrad courses teach that you look at and under the truck as you come back to it from a stop.

    That doesn't mean it can't be dark, or there could be cars double parked AROUND the car, etc.

    I only typed that to spread the word. If someone reads it and it somehow prevents any other tragedy for the driver and the family for a child, it was worth the effort.
