Drivers need to slow down, and pay attention! Not only on the highway but also in parking lots. You take your life in your hands, trying to get to the store. It seems the biggest offenders are moms with kids. They should know better.

ColeyReich, Nothing new on my end. Does anyone in the community know the family, or have any info on how the child is doing?

It's sad that comments to a story about a child being hit by a car devolve into attacks against the posters. Let's keep our comments to the pertinent part of the story. Let's all slow down, pay more attention and hope this little guy gets better. Let's also hope that the mother and the driver both learn from the accident. Keep your kids close and pay attention when driving...no matter when or where.
