    Terrible when stuff like that happens. I was walking to my car through a Home Depot parking lot a couple years ago when a lady in a "Forrest Service" pickup truck struck a man who was walking to his car one isle over from where I was walking. The man wasn't killed but did require being transported in an ambulance. I tend to drive though parking lots with a healthy degree of paranoia. You just never know when someone is going to pop in front of (or behind) your car from out of nowhere.

    What is the signifigance of the picture of the train tracks?

    I don't know. I just re-loaded it and it's fine, I think. News report.

    Seems like it happens to me every time I drop it in reverse. Sometimes multiple times!

    FWIW, I also get the model train track. O-scale I think

    Little folks often run whenever they see an open space. Sometimes parents let go of their kids' hands when they load/unload the car. I always worry when I'm driving down a street with cars parked along the curb. Kids can run out between the cars and there's no warning. So sad.

    In TOC's first post, just copy the link text itself and delete the embedded staticflickr reference. For some reason the html text for 13Fox News refers to a completely unrelated jpg on staticflickr.

    I just checked, the URL inserted is exactly what it read on my first post, yet took you elsewhere.

    Same link, just not "inserted" here:

    I always try to be careful in parking lots and streets. As noted, younger kids can dart out anywhere, they're sort of like puppies, completely in the now and not aware of the potential consequences. But I also see a lot of folks who seem to think the idea of a parking lot is to get in and out as quickly as possible, not stopping at row intersections, cutting through and much more. Want to grab them by the ears, shake their heads and say "parking lot, not a racetrack"

    Tragic situation for all involved.

    I am long past dealing with children of that age but I would think the ideal order would be put the child in the car first then get the groceries, texts messages etc. The reverse for arriving at the store. Child out last.
    Of course the child may have just taken off suddenly. We use to see young kids with leashes in the UK so there was some sort of restraint/control over their random dashing in dangerous places.

    van.jpgThis is the mother's van...suv...whatever. Folks bought flowers and plastered the vehicle with them. Reports are the vehicle was still there three hours ago with even more flowers.
