death and tragedy
Yesterday in our little mini snow storm (its all melted now) a 18-year old, was crossing the street at 6:30 am. Apparently the driver did not see him, due to visibility - and hit the young man. He tried to stand up, and was on his knees shouting for help, when another truck, who also did not see him, hit him a second time.
He died later from his injuries.
He was 18 years old.
I did not know him, but my heart is aching for him, his family - his mother.
You just never know, when some freak accident will occur. No alcohol or drugs were involved and the drivers were not charged. I don't know if I agree with that, after all in California the pedestrian ALWAYS has the right-a-way.
He was just a kid - was just starting his life, developing his own opinions, trying things on - Bless his heart.
I think what is bothering me, is that he shouted out for help and no one heard him - he could of lived.
Makes me go back - to when my son died. Did he know he was dying? Did he cry out for help? It tears me up.
