When are we going to get details of this horrible accident? There are certainly lessons to be learned for everyone with this type of driveway and small children in the area.

Gosh. Such incredible sadness. My heart goes out to the family and all involved. RIP little angel.

Such a horrible accident.

So tragic - I'm sure the boy's family is heart-broken and the driver is devastated. They may all need grief counseling. Maybe the Center for Hope in Darien can help them heal.

A devastating loss. Our prayers, and wishes for strength, are with the family. May God be with you.

My thoughts and prayers go to the family in this difficut, difficult tragic time.
