My comment about accident is we shouldn't blame the drlve for what happen that faithful day, the mother as to take part because she left her son unattend to knowing full well that the neighborhood she live in is not safe street. She even admit that her dog was killed in the same spot, that did not make her think about letting a 4 yrs old on the street with aa 12 yrs old. My opinon is the mother fault for not looking out for her children.
