I'm sitting here at Dairy Queen and this kid runs across the street. He was hit by a car and is probably going to die. I feel so sorry for whoever his parents are. He has short brown hair and he looks to be about 14-16 years old. This is not a joke or hearsay, I'm sitting here looking at him dying.

That's so sad. I've always said they need a crossing guard right there that poor family.

Is that what all these cops are doing here on the corner? I'm stuck in traffic behind it all. I'm so sorry whoever that little baby belongs to.

I saddens me and breaks my heart anytime there is young life lost. I hope and pray this child survives. The poor family who's life has been changed all within a few minutes, my thougths are with them. Please any teen who may read this. Please think before you do things, life is so precious.

That is without a doubt one of the cruelest things I've ever read. Do you have any idea the panic you have caused in everyones' hearts that has someone they love going to East? I cannot believe someone would post this. I am so mad I'm shaking, and I know no one that goes to East. You should be ashamed!!!

My daughter saw it happen, she came home in tears.Said the woman who hit him was going to leave the scene. The speed limit through there is 20 mph & from what my daughter told me she saw ( I wont go into detail)the person driving the car mustve been going well over the speed limit. Lets keep this kid & his family in our prayers.

This is exactly how crap gets started. No, the boy isn't going to die. He is fine. A dying boy doesn't lay on the stretcher laughing and flipping off the driver who hit him. He is believed to have a fractured leg. Goes by the name of "Bambi". He's pretty pissed, but not dying.
Yes, he walked when it was his turn to walk according to the crosswalk sign. Yes, apparently the woman ran a redlight. And she had the nerve to be hateful about it. Idk what her intentions were as far as leaving the scene, but I doubt it. Unless she SAID she was going to leave, no one would know because we don't have any mind readers walking around there. But she was at fault, and she did use some not so nice language towards the kid who was hit.
So to get the facts straight: yes a boy was hit. He was knocked in the air and lost a shoe. He probably has a broken leg. The driver was at fault as the boy was walking within the crosswalk on "Walk".

I always slow down through there especially when the kids are standing on the corner before or after school.I hope he will be all right and may he recover quickly.

maybe thats a legitimate place to move a speed cam to.

If they are for safety wouldnt a location at our schools be a better use of them?

If they are for safety why arent they watching over our kids?

They need a crossing guard there. I know these are high school kids who should know how to cross the street but I've seen drivers totally ignore when the kids have the right of way.
