Commentary on Child Killed in Truck Accident in Albany Park in Chicago

It's just heart-wrenching to see details like this. What little silver lining can be found would be in police releasing photos of the truck which they say was involved here. That's almost always a sure sign that someone is going to connect the dots and come forward.

What really concerns me, though, is that the truck appears to be a work vehicle of some kind. Is there some company out there covering for a reckless employee? Can they identify who was in that truck? Did they know one of their employees was capable of something so awful yet did nothing? There are too many unanswered questions here, but I'm hopeful that continued efforts will yield a resolution for this grieving family.
