    What has this community come to? The police isn’t at fualt for anything that the citizens of the community do. Every one sbould be mad at how they have let this stuff go on in the first place. Work on building a stronger safer community not complaining at how its handle prevent the acts of wrong doing. Just saying!

    Very sad to hear. Wondering though, what was a 2 year old doing running around a motel parking lot at 930 pm?

      Was also wondering that same thing. I’ve heard the story get spun several different ways with a variety of excuses. It’s a tradgedy from start to finish. I feel so sad for the family and their loss, but also feel compassion for the driver. His charges are just and deserving. Can’t argue that. I’m just sure this man is crushed and filled with remorse and guilt for taking a life in this accident. Yet the question remains un-answered, What was a 2 yr old doing out running around at 9:30 at night ???

    The breakdown of family and values have led to a lot of tragedy.
