Can anyone explain, how on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, November 17th, can someone recklessly drive through a stop sign entering a paved highway? This was no accident....this was murder with a deadly weapon or at the very least manslaughter. If there was a reason for the "accident" i.e. ice/snow, fog, thunderstorm ANYTHING, it could be explained as a horrible tragic "accident".
I pray the person responsible and named in the accident reports will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We need even stronger laws to help prevent these selfish ignorant drivers from getting behind the wheel of a car and use it as a weapon. This beautiful innocent child's family is devastated with grief. Their world has exploded and feels destroyed, because of one person's selfish selfish act. This was a innocent loving family minding their own business, traveling down a paved highway unknowingly traveling to their doom.
If we (society), don't express our outrage more vocally and get even stronger laws passed, it could be your family next that must find a way to pick up the pieces after such a violent act. The driver who caused this accident didn't just run over a dog or "accidently" run through a stop sign...He KILLED an innocent child.
Each and everyone of us should be outraged, and watchful for you never know when it will be you or your loved ones, as long as these selfish people continue to go unpunished for their selfish selfish actions.
