ld son Aaron was driving his Dad's truck his friend Austin Shelton also six years old was in the truck with him and they wrecked over a hill (they say it was about a 75 foot hill). They flipped four times before landing. Austin Shelton did not survie, as horrible as this acciedent was please keep in mind that it was an accident. I am in no trying uphold what happened it was wrong in every way but sometimes parents let thier children do things and over see the danger.

These families are in my thoughts and prayers. On the news this morn they didn't mention any adult in the truck. Just the boys. They said the parents and grandparents were on the property at the time of the accident. They were on a road on private property. So sad!

that is horrible, its a shame that kids are hurt by the people who are supposed to protect them at all expense..who in their right mind would turn 2 six year old babies loose in an automobile NEXT TO A 75' DROP OFF..

i talked to the grandparents ,no one turned the kids loose in a truck,it was an accident...the grown ups were cutting firewood to keep these kids warm.the boys got the truck.little kids often use bad judgement.austin ,the little boy killed lived w/his grandparents along w/a sister and two brothers there mother just got out of jail ,and austins father is in jail.im sure everyone regrets what happened and already blames themselfs.so wondering you really dont need to.the grandparents are good people and do the best they can.

It is really sad that the little boy isn't with his family anymore....I heard several rumors about the family and little boy .but all that don't really matter, it won't bring the little boy back, god bless his little heart and his brother who will now have to live with the fact his brother has passed.It breaks my heart into....I couldn't imagine ever letting my son out of my eyesight especially behind the wheel of an automobile...thats insane...there are times when things happen, my son is accident prone....if he can get hurt he usually does......but that is just uncalled for....I am sorry....no excuse there but an adult chosing the wrong decision...

you know i have never lost a kid and hope and pray i never do but it kills me that people come on here pointing blame on everyone when they have no clue what happend... I is so sick that when something this horrible happens that people have nothing better to do then come on a computer and talk chit. well let me tell you what no matter what happend the little boy lost his life and his family is hurt,,, things happen for a reason ... my son would not even go to school today because he said autsin would not be there and then i come on here to see if anyone has found out arrangements and all i see is blame nasty comments. yeah i know it is a computer but the computer dont write the crap the horrible people behind it does. and to me them are people who have been hurt in someone trying to bring someone else down becuase they have been .. so back off this family let them and all of us remeber this little boy as we all did sweet beautiful and very talkave... sorry i speak my mind but you guys are dogging his family when all they need is prayers ...

sorry princess but I too speak my mind and looks like so do a couple more. nobody is on here talking shit! only speaking our opinion, we still have that right in this country ya know. I hope you feel better with your holier than thou attitude but when a child dies in such a manner it shakes us parents up and we can't see how 2 six year olds could be allowed to be in such a situation...they have our prayers, we're not heartless. nobody blames the grandparents for this, where were his parents, the people who are supposed to protect him! its kinda common response when a 6 year old drives a truck over an embankment for grownups to shake their head and say thats outrageous!

I agree mibbbe. Some opinions don't need to be voiced. I find this thread (and most) very disrespectful. There's no need to point fingers. My heart is going out to the family and friends. As far as the rumors go, we have 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason. Keep your ears open and your mouth shut, its common sense. Just because you "hear" something new doesn't mean you have to post it, it doesn't mean you have to speak it. Stop the rumors.

I agree this forum goes a little too far sometimes. my heart goes out to the family but some parents need to act like parents to keep tragedies like this from happening, doesn't help to talk about it but if it could save another childs life wouldn't it be worth it? this is not ok....granted it's heart breaking but it has a neglectful side also......
