I was 4th in line behind the accident scene when it happened. There is nothing to crash a car near the road, no posts or trees etc. Did they hit another car from the opposing direction ? Our hearts go out to the parents. Did anybody else get hurt in the accident ?

I was one of the first people to be on the scene and call 911. It was the most horrifying thing I have ever seen in my life. If the mother was intoxicated, I hope she gets what she deserves. She has to live with this for the rest of her life. If she would have made him put a seat belt on, the result could have been completely different. My prayers go out to the family in coping with their loss.

The Mother, will live with her deadly mistakes, over this child dying,whether it's hers, or not. The Child,should have had a seatbelt on. That's why it's a law,to save lives, not to be a punishment.What was she thinking,drinking & driving ? She'll pay dearly,not just mentally. She'll have to get an interlock device,if she wants to drive in the future.And with kids, I'm sure she won't be able to afford it,with Lawyer Fees,Court Fines,Probation Fees,etc.
THINK,before you DRINK & DRIVE !
