    Too bad when you report them nothing is done. We have reported the same gentleman 10 times in Pleasant Point and he just keeps having close calls nearly missing children on a few occasions

    Was a parent backing out of a driveway not a collision

    A painful sad loss for this family and our community at large.
    As a community they will need our support and privacy.
    Many hearts feel their pain.
