That is a very dangerous section of highway, school play ground on one side, park on the other side. We had a similiar accident with a 6 y/o boy about 6 years ago. he was trying to cross the highway to get to the playground. he was looking behind him, didnt see me, i swerved to get out of his way, he never saw me until he ran into the side of me. thank god it was only a car and not a semi. outcome could have been alot different. at the time of the accident, i dont think there was bike helmet law in place, hopefully now there is. KIDS ARE FAST Prayers to all involved.
