why withhold a name.... with topix there are no secrets... no one shows decency and concern with the family of either party. The driver was in the wrong place at the wrong time and accidents unfortunately happen.

The only difference in this site and facebook is a block button. People are always going to find a way to be evil. This site or facebook or any other site does not destroy lives, people do. To me it is just like blaming guns for killing people. Someone has to pull the trigger folks, and it is evil, bad, nasty human beings. There are good folks out there who still have some common sense, though I realize they are few and far between. Please just pray for all involved.

What does it matter what is on this site. It is news and people wanna know. The terrible news was already on the news, newspaper and yes the boy's name was on Deal's funeral home website LAST NIGHT. If this was a family member or close friend then you really should not even be on this site at this time at all worrying over who knows what.

Yeah, family and friends should take this time and spend with their loved ones- they shouldn't have to worry about idiots on here posting crap about their loss

If you are that sensitive I don't see how you'll get through this world. Again, for all you babyfied followers, nobody said anything wrong or bad. Just curiosity. Grow up.

Wrong. Families and relationships do not fall apart because if websites, they fall apart because of families and relationships. If the relationships were so great, a website wouldn't change that. I guess everyone needs a scape goat.

My children attend Ashton elementary and my kids knew Trey and his family. We are all just in shock over what has happened and can't even imagine what the family is going through. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this tragic time. Also to the driver James... God can only imagine what you must be going through your self right now. I pray you find peace in knowing that he is not in any pain... and I hope that you are not blaming your self. It could happen to any of us. Prayers to the family and this young man through this difficult time....
Totally Agree

Very well stated. But by the Grace of God it could have happened to any one of us at any time. ALL PARTIES INVOLVED need our prayers!

The family is a great family. They are taking donations to use for the Ashton Elementary playground equipment. Not everyone is that thoughtful. I know the family really well and I can tell you that they are also praying for the guy driving the truck. The driver is having a hard time with this. So keep both families in your prayers.

Thats true, I agree wit the person at the top of this forum. Accidents happen everyday. The driver was just at the wrong place at the wrong time, its not his/her fault. But i am praying for the little boys family. Its sad to see kids go like that. I am also praying for the driver of the truck for having to deal wit this.

I thought when I heard this news that my Lil Cousin I help raised had gotten hit and then my other Lil cousin lives out SandHill as well as the one i raised, panic filled my heart cause I couldn't get ahold of no one!Whats crazy about it all is at the same exact time this had happened the mother of one of the my lil cousins had tried stopping me in town and I wouldnt stop for her not knowing what was going on, thinking she was wanting something dumb. I later checked WSAZ which I never do and seen this, I was shocked and breathless knowing that one of them has already been hit by 1 vehicle and that they both live at the beginning of the Rd. The most craziest thing about it is my 10 yr old lil cousins name is Trey!!! All I could find out for around an hr is that his name was Trey and he was 10!! I know what I felt when this happened so I can only imagine what the parents truelly feel!! I'm so sorry for this to happen and my best friends Lil boy was there with your son when this happened and he is lost right this second! Your Prayers are in our hearts! James I also know you and I know that right know your are having a hard time and I am so sorry for you also you are in our familys prayers and thought as well!!! God Bless You and I am so sorry for this to have happened to such a precious Lil boy!
