According to authorities, witnesses said the boy darted into traffic while trying to cross from the south to the north side of state Highway 46 in the village....where's mom/dad or an adult?

Hang in there little guy!

what about the person who hit this boy does anyone care that he is going through hell as well. Yes the boy hit is fight for his life. How ever the young person who hit him is also forever changed by what transpired yesterday afternoon. Every one needs to pray for all who were forever changed by yesterdays event.

Auntie loves you little man.

this could have happened to any one of us. think about it do u always look both ways when u cross the road. how many close calls did u ever have. this little boy is fighting for his life. mommy was there just a minute to late she performed cpr on her son. she was able to get his pulse back with the help of another person he performed chest compresstions as she blow back every breathe he needed to get a pulse and made sure was stable to b airlifted. what we all need to do is pray he pulls through.

I know how bad this accident was and my mom was there. She may not have been there when he was crossing the street but she was waiting for him on the other side. People make mistakes all the time and noone knew he was gonna dart infront of traffic or that he was gonna get hit. He is in critical damage and right now we don't need to focus on the accident itself. Its done and over with right now we should be focusing on my little brother we can do the blame thing later. Cause right now his life is on the line and we need as much love and prayers as we can. He's only seven years old and i want to see his little wings bloom. I also think we should pray for the kid who accidently hit my little brother he had no clue that cody would dart infront of him. He's in as much pain as the rest of us and i think we should pray for him too.That kid is a victim too just not in the same way as my little brother cody. So if anyone reads this do me a favor before you go to bed say a prayer for both of them please we would be so grateful for it.

I will pray for all involved. To be able to see outside your own pain and have empathy for the person driving the car speaks volumes to the kind of person you are. May everyone involved recover fully and go on to lead happy productive lives. God blessing to you all.

What a brave young girl you are. Your mom should be very proud of you. Your wise above your years.'Nobody' is ever to blame for an accident. I've been praying for your family since I heard about it.
The woulda's, coulda's, shoulda's in life are just that. Nobody can ever change a accident! They happen!!! Be brave & stay strong.

yes, as for the boy that hit him. pray for him also. it was a terrible accident. but he will have to deal with this forever. my gosh i cant even imagine what he is going through, hopefully with some counseling he will get better. he need to realize it wasnt his fault. my thought and prayers r with this family also.

I am a friend of Cody (the one who was driving the truck) and he is having a Very difficult time dealing with this accident, prayers for him would be appreciated.

To the family of Cody (the little boy):
I am soo sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you through this trying time.

Please remember that this was an accident, and that nobody is to blame, not mom, not either Cody, nobody. As horrifyingly tragic as the accident was, and as much as everybody wishes that they could turn back time, it was an AcCIdeNT and blame will neither help nor change anything.

Actually that didn't happen a year ago, it was several years ago when he was still pretty little. But just the same, they have had their share of hard times.
We LOVE you Cody!! Hang in there!

I didnt even know this forum existed until today. I am (was) Cody's father. Thank you for all the kind words. I have been left out of the loop for the most part. I didnt even know my daughter Ilishia posted here, nor her friend from Texas, and Ilishia lived with me at the time. But there was a lot going on at the time. I am upset at a lot of things that surrounded his death, but not the driver that hit him. People have been sooo misinformed as to the true nature of the beast. But thank you so much for your kind thoughts and prayers, and for being there for my son when he needed you.
