On Wednesday October 10, WISHtv, one of our fine Indiana news stations, reported on a tragic car accident that has surely left a family devastated and searching for answers. It appears that a young child was struck by a passenger car in Marion County. The child had to be rushed to the hospital with what were considered serious injuries. We can’t know or understand the grief and anguish the family must be experiencing, but we’re sure it’s heart-wrenching. Our hearts go out to the family of the victim, and we pray for a swift healing process.
Having families of our own, we know that when a loved one is injured in a car accident (or for any other reason) the impact travels throughout the whole family. This is why when someone is injured we rally around them and try to be their support system.
The authorities reported that the driver of the car did stop and remained on the scene of the car accident in order to assist the injured child and answer questions. Though it is nice to hear that the police are saying the accident does not appear to be alcohol-related it does not change the fact that a child is seriously injured and that the family has most likely dropped everything else in order to be by his side.
In this case, as with any Indianapolis accident that involves severe injury or death, a comprehensive investigation will occur. The police will be doing all they can to understand what happened and why it happened.
