sorry for her loss, and I know it will haunt her forever. BUT what is a 2 year old doing running around a parking lot of an apartment complex? if she was leaving who was watching the baby? I know she didn't do this on purpose but really??? someone needs to be charged with the death of this baby, either the mother for not knowing where her child was or who ever was supposed to be watching the child, my guess is another child was supposed to be watching the child.....

This was my friend and being around her often I know first hand that she is a damn good mom! She is the last person who deserved something like this! It was a freak accident and in no way shape or form should she be charged. All of you people who are talking trash- just remember that if a situation like this comes knocking at your door that it's your karma for speaking negatively on a situation you know nothing about!

this is ridiculous. I cannot believe that people are blaming Megan for this. It is not fair and she is a good mother. she should not go through all this pain and suffering for making an honest mistake compared to other parents who have made mistakes that are much more unforgivable. Megan did nothing wrong. I am so sorry for their loss and the loss of the entire family.

Megan, I don't know you but I know they won't stop. They have nothing better to do than judge and belittle because they are sad sad human beings.
Your friend is in my prayers and these who know the situation know that it was indeed a horrible accident. God bless their family with peace and strength.

This is a sad, sad thing to happen to this mother! I'm so sorry about her loss. This seems like a real accident. She didn't purposefully do this! It's just sad that you all have to bash this woman when Rudy can hit her child so hard in the head and cause a skull fracture and defend her and say it was an accident when it wasn't! But this is clearly an accident. I don't know this woman but I will pray for her!

Ignorant people on topix post shit about this family,karma is a bitch. You all don't have no morals or sympathy for this family in their time of grieving. And your family's should bury all of you face down so you all can see where your going!

I heard the mom had left to go to store and the dad was watching the kids and he went to bathroom. The little girl got out and went after her mom. The mom didn't know she was outside and didn't know she had come behind the van. So sad. I feel so sorry for the mom. Accidents like this happen a lot. I've seen them all over the news through the years.

There have been reports that I had something to do with this tragedy. Like I took this precious baby because I needed another rose in my garden. There is one who is a liar, a thief, and a destroyer. The devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy.
I want you all to know that I want my people to have life, and have life more abundantly.
Use a little wine for your stomachs sake and your infirmities, or beer is okay if you choose. All things are lawful, but do not be controlled by anything. I don't like religious people.
I am getting a bit tired of ill informed people blaming me for all the suffering and tears in this world. The good news is I'm gonna make some changes soon. I'm going to take this planet back and put my guy in charge. Things will change for the better. Have compassion and love for your fellows. Let me do the judging.
I am the God who comforts the grieving

Sending prayers for this family. I couldn't imagine losing a child especially at such a young age. Nobody would purposefully back over their own child. This is clearly a horrible accident. If anything, this should be a lesson learned for everybody to always be aware of your surroundings and make sure kids aren't left alone even if it is for just a second. Anything can happen within a split second.

That woman should go to jail. Child neglect how could you not know where your child is that.
You are dumb!!! The baby was in the house with the dad and he went to bathroom and she went after her mom. I did the same thing when I was little at a motel. I chased after my dad. Luckily I wasn't hit bc my dad drives a 18 wheeler. It happens. Watch the news. For another note you ass wipe if she was a stay at home mother that has nothing to do with it!! You should be ashamed of yourself you piece of crap!!!! More children need stay at home moms bc they wouldn't grow up to be the idiots that most teens are now. I'm a stay at home mom bc my husband makes enough for both of us. I don't want my children raised by anyone but me!!! You can go to hell bc that's where you belong!!
