This tragedy serves as a reminder of the importance of safety when it comes to vehicles and children. It is especially important to be mindful when children are playing in driveways, as they can be hard to see from inside a vehicle. It is also important to make sure that vehicles are in park and that the emergency brake is engaged before anyone exits.
It is also important to be aware of the potential dangers that can arise when a vehicle is being moved in a driveway. In this case, a family member was attempting to make more room for the children to play when the tragedy occurred. It is important to ensure that the area is clear of children before attempting to move any vehicle.
These types of tragedies can be prevented with awareness and caution. It is important to be mindful of the potential danger that can arise when vehicles and children are in close proximity. We can all take steps to ensure the safety of our children by being aware of our surroundings and taking the necessary precautions.
