I live near an elementary school, and drive by it twice a day. Yesterday that very busy street was closed off. It took us about 40 min to go about 1/2 mile. Turns out an 8 year old boy was walking home from school with his younger sister. They were goofing around and she pushed him. He tripped and fell into oncoming traffic.
They took him off life support late last night.
I can't even begin to understand how his sister must feel. Or the driver of the truck that ran over him. Witnesses said traffic was going slow, but he had NO time to stop.
How many times have we gently pushed someone, not in anger, but in fun. For something so innocent to turn out so deadly is tragic.
I'm feeling very sad for their families....
