    Oh no – that’s horrible. I hope he didn’t run out in front of a car on purpose. Prayers for the boy and the driver who hit him. I personally know someone who hit and killed my neighbor and even though it was his fault, she struggled with guilt for a long time…still does.

      Why would he run out in front of car on purpose?

        In case you have not heard, there is this thing called suicide.

        To commit suicide is what I was getting at. At 15, he is old enough to know to not just run out in the street unlike a toddler.

        Suicide, or sometimes to try and cash in on the driver’s insurance. Both seem unlikely, though.

        People sometimes run into roads to commit suicide, you never know what someone is going through

    wonder who’s insurance is going to take care of the damages.

    Maybe he got lost in the woods and was trying to find his way out and was just running and ran into traffic! All you guys can do is assume at this point, we will never know the truth!

    Maybe he was being chased and running for his life. You just don’t know now days.

    You all don’t know what happened but hope not suicide just glad he and the driver is ok! Period

    Long as the driver and person who was hit is ok that’s all that matter. It’s a lot of negative remarks on here and this situation involves a child.
