Map of the Area
Man, this is just a tragic accident you hate to see. It goes to show how important it is that drivers take the utmost care when driving through neighborhoods. When streets are narrow, parked cars are obstructing views, and kids are outside playing, there's no telling when a driver might find themselves needing to avoid an accident.
Drivers must take all possible precautions in neighborhood areas; put the phone down, hands on the wheel, eyes on the road, and foot ready to brake. Investigators will need to determine that the driver did everything they could to avoid this accident. It's understandable that sometimes drivers just don't have enough time to react, but anytime someone is hurt or killed--especially a child--it warrants careful and thorough investigations.
