Does anyone have any information about a 6 yr old killed by a car, in the crosswalk, by Merle Norman, on the square, in Carrollton?

I heard that too. The young son of Joe Garrett, who writes for the Times Georgian. They were trick or treating. Mr. Garrett has three young children. Please pray for this family. Such a tragedy...

If they were in the crosswalk, did someone run a light or did the child dart out in front of someone?

It happened in front of First Methodist. As I recall, that area is poorly lit at night.

Many cars go really fast through this area. Some 40 mph or so , trying to make the green lights. Also a lot of bars and restaurants are located here. I believe there should be a 15 mph speed zone at the square----- enforced in the area. Thanks
