Children and cars do not mix. Separate the two and accidents similar to this would not happen.

It's not always the drivers fault. Having driven around dean recently I would bet on it being the kid! They have no road sence. It's scary! They sit, lay, walk in the road like it's their right.

Adults are just as bad... idly ambling across the road without a care for the drivers.

Hope the kid gets well soon.
