• First of all not even the advocate has their facts straight on this. The boy is almost 7 and his sister is almost 13 and the other girl was his sisters friend who is between 11 and 13. They were dropped off at skateworld only minutes before the accident which happens to be located right down the street from their grandmother and very close to his house, his great grandparents and his great aunts houses so he wasnt very far from home at all and the sister had a cell phone. It was also between 6:30 and 7:30 PM so it wasnt like it was 10 o'clock at night either just getting dark. His mother assumed he was safe and having fun with his friends with his sister and her friends keeping a watchful eye and plenty of other children and adults around while she went home to care for her 2 year old. She had just got home when her daughter called to say he was hit by a car. His sister and her friend decided to take him to family dollar to get candy before they went inside skateworld and he ran ahead and jumped out there because he is fearless and didnt know any better and he didnt see it coming in time. They had no business over there. It only takes a second. It was an unfortunate accident but he is ok and the mother and the children all learned a valuable lesson. But before people are so quick to pass judgement they should get the facts straight first and dont believe everything you read. Those kids are A/B honor roll children who rarely if ever get in any trouble and arent abused or neglected in anyway nor were they conceived for the sole purpose of a welfare check!

  • The boy wasn't by himself. He was with his 4- and 5-year-old sisters!
