Was the driver on their cell? Was the child not in a child restraint or seat belt? As I go to work each morning there is a person who run the stop sign and light and one day they are going to get hit also. I want to sleep late also but this person is a accident waiting to happen. Was this person late for an appointmentor kids distracting them? we will never know. Does the police use their seriens when commint to a crossroad or just flash lights?

The female driver had 6 other passengers in the car, so there's no telling what distracted her. From what I've been told she DID stop at the stop sign. She just didn't look closely enough to see the oncoming car because it was coming out of the east, the same direction of the sun. Although that is NO excuse for why her daughter wasn't in a carseat, or why the other 2 yr old passenger, who wasn't the sister of the deceased girl, but the daughter of the other female passenger, wasn't in a car seat either. The officer wasn't on his way to call so there was no reason for him to have his lights on. He said he thought he saw her stop, but then she just pulled out in front of him when he was probably 10 yrds from the intersection. This was an awful, awful thing that could have be avoided! Please parents....BUCKLE UP YOUR KIDS & YOURSELVES!!! It saved the lives of the two young boys that were also in the vehicle!
