We live in a nearby subdivision north of the intersection and simply can't imagine how you're feeling. It could have been any one of us to make a random trip to the grocery store with our children only to suffer consequences such as this. All due to unnecessary stupidity. May you find strength in family, friends and a Higher Being. You are in many prayers, Fontana neighbor.

P.S. We ask ourselves, why were three supposed grown men running a red light -- with firearms in their vehicle? No answers. They're dead, yet it doesn't take away the pain of this child's mother. Fontana PD will hopefully find and give answers!!

My heart breaks for this mother and as a mom I know there is no greater loss than the loss of a child. Having said that, I must add that the 3 brothers also had a mother who has lost 3 of her sons all at once. These men also have wives and children whom are also suffering.
As far as the firearms are concerned, I know for a fact that these men had spent time together at the shooting range with their registered firearms and there is no crime in doing so. Concerning alcohol, there were beer cans, but not open containers. Only the toxicology results will determine how much-if any, alcohol was involved. Until then it would be unfair to assume drunkeness.
I pray for Noah and his family and I'm so sorry for their pain and loss.
I also am praying for the Leon family and the pain and loss they are going through.
May everyone RIP.

I live on the North side of the intersection. People constantly run this light at high speeds. I feel so badly for the family of the boy who died. I lack sympathy for the idiots that ran the light so late. There is a big delay with that light. In order for these guys to hit her where they did, that light must of been red for a while. It's terrible that the innocent have to suffer for stupid people. And what's up with the beer cans n guns?? The families from the guys that died should be sued severely

My heart & prayers go out to mother of Noah. He was so young & it is terrible that his fate came at the hands of someone else. Whether alcohol was involved or not, they still took him from his family, an innocent child. May he Rest in Peace.

MORNING STAR--Didn't you read the post above yours. Nothing is set on stone yet there is still a lot of questions that have not been answered. Guys were missing a point here. This is a tragic lost for all families involved. On one side we have a family that just lost three of there own. They have lost a son, a cousin, a father a brother. There's innocent little children that will not have a father for the rest of there lives. They are also innocent victims of this situation. Regardless of how things happened its to late to point fingers nothing is going to bring them back. I also feel for the little boys family especially him being an only child. He was so young and his life was shortened at a very young age. I can just imagine the pain of both mothers they both lost they're kids. Remember people this can happen to any of us. We all drive and these things are called ACCIDENTS. How many times have we been distracted while were driving lets be honest. Lets just pray that this never happens to any of us and lets pray for both families involved. God bless the ones who left and god bless the ones who are still here and have a journey ahead of them!

NOT TAKING SIDES - There are no sides taken. Of course there is sadness felt for all who cherished their loved ones. Surely it's tragic for the loved ones of these grown men, as they must have questions as to WHY? What distracted you to run the red, as one witness accounts? Why didn't you three responsible men wear your seat belts? Amongst MANY other "why's"? Now, please pardon the unspoken majority (especially of this family-oriented area) who feel more sadness for the mother and family who no longer have the pleasure of raising their young son and watching him grow up. They no longer have that gift. But not taking sides. Truth will come! Let's listen -and learn from this loss. Whatever the cause is ruled, may those loved ones stand behind tougher laws...i.e. Talking AND texting behind wheel? Drinking n driving? Speeding? Seatbelts? This nonsense is getting old.

-Not taking sides...I am not taking sides by expressing my sympathies to Noah's family. He was truly innocent child. He was wearing his seat belt, he was in the car that had the right of way (by ALL witness' accounts). Tell me how can a Mother find comfort knowing someone, especially older adults, took lives with bad decisions. Nothing will bring back anyone or take away any one of these family's pain. But please don't compare Noah's innocence to anyone else's. He never got a chance to drive or be a husband or father like these men did. It's hard to make any sense of a tragedy when an innocent child is taken. R I P.

To the clueless" Morning Star Neighbor" you are not an accident scene investigator so hopefully no one reading your asinine comment will take you seriously and they will wait until the investigation is complete before making any judgements.
As far as saying the families of the guys should be sued severely, these were adults with families (small children) that worked everyday as a matter of fact, their wives also worked to make ends meet. I suppose the widows and children should go without food and shelter because of something they have no control of? Don't you think before you type? Apparently not. If the families could turn back time and prevent this horrible tragedy from happening,I'm sure they would. It's not possible. I am sure they have paid enough for an accident that was no fault of their own. If you had a grown son that killed someone accidentally or otherwise would you expect to be held responsible for his actions?

First I would like to say that everyone that is blaming all 3 adults are idiots! There was only one driver and whether he was doing anything he shouldn't have been doing or it was a malfunction in his breaks, to maybe even having a heart attack while driving....the other 2 brothers in the car were INNOCENT just as the little boy....does ANYONE think about that shit?? THEY WERE TARGET SHOOTING MOST OF THEIR DAY and they were awesome men with beautiful wives and kids and not once would they ever have thought to kill someone else's child or anyone for that matter. A person's life is just as precious as any others life....NONE OF THEM DESERVED TO DIE!

I absolutely agree with you. I know the Leon family and they are suffering not only for their loss, but the loss of the other family as well. God bless them all.

i totally agreewith you!! everyone is sooo quick to cross judgement on what happened but yet dont know the truth of the story!! the guns weren't being used at the time of the accident so that has nothing to do with it, the beers weren't open!! it was a mistake that was made by running a red light, from kowing these men im sure they didnt run the red light with the intentions of killing an innocent lil boy!! they were on their way home to their families!! these men left behind a mother, father, wives, 7 small children amongst them all!! also family and friends!! my heart goes out to all the families involved, but we should ALL take this as a life lesson instead of being so quick to cross judgemnet!! We never know when its going to our last day here and we never know how we are going to leave this world!! we are all so quick to judge but yet i am SURE you have been done something that has or couldve been a mistake and possibly harmed other people......like driving with a drunk person or driving with any amount of alchol in your system, falling asleep while driving, looking or reading something, talking or texting, looking back at something or not fully paying attention, picking something off the floor or reaching for something, it could be the smallest thing that we may do and the end results could be a horrible tradegy!! i also knew someone who knew the little boy Noah and i feel very sad for his family but i am also a mother of 3 boys and i could never imagine loosing all 3 at one time!! so instead of judging why dont we pray and let it be a life lesson to love and cherish our families everyday!! An accident could happen to anybody!!

YOU lack sympathy??? And what makes ur sympathy so special? Everybody in this situation is suffering...do u really think that the families of the men in the suv deserve to suffer for the their mistake? Ur negative comments and empty words dont do any good. Noah's mom said he loved churchand God. He would probably rather us pray than to try to add to the pain that is already bad enough.

i agree, the little boy was taken at someone else's hands and it shouldn't have happened, but the other brothers who were passengers in the car were just as innocent and their lives were also taken by their brother that was driving the car. Do you think the brother driving would kill his brothers, a little boy who is as old as his own child and himself? It was a dumb accident of running the red light that caused this to happen and its just sad for all that lost their lives and their families who are left to mourn.
