When I read this in the newspaper I thought of all kinds of things to say, most of which has already been said in this thread. Bottom line, there's no question or hindsight answer the family has not already posed to themselves and will continue to be haunted by from now on.

Sometimes in life we don't see the danger that's staring right at us. This was such a case. All that's left is to pray for the family that they may find peace of mind and recover from this traumatic and needless tragedy.

I totally agree. Unless someone knows if there were any witnesses at the time the mother got in to the cart with the children, and heard who decided to allow the five year old to drive, no one should fault, accuse or speculate. The mother was the adult. Could it have been that she was the only adult around and made a bad decision?
All of the children involved are victims of circumstance. This was a traumatic event for each of them. Pray for them all.
