    May the good Lord continue to bless your family and that he will send a special angle down to watch over and protect the two youngest children and sustain them through their time of need and help speed their recovery. My heart goes out to you and so do my prayers.

    This is so sad, and it happens way too often. Too many drivers aren't paying attention, they don't yield the right of way, run red lights, etc. Every morning I watch people run red lights on Nicholasvillle Rd. Just this past Thursday a lady almost ran me off the road on my way home from work. She was talking on her cell phone and swerved into my lane. This morning at the intersection of Nicholasville Rd. and Reynolds Rd. there was a car in the intersection after the light had changed. These idiots think they're beating the clock but they're just endangering the lives of innocent people. I hope this child makes a full recovery, but too often they don't. As a state we need to require all drivers to retake their road test periodicaally and we need more traffic officers patrolling our roadways. Of course we also need to pay these officers a better wage than what is currently offered. Only then will we stop losing so many lives in preventable accidents.

    I don't know what caused the wreck but it doesn't matter now. It's done the damage and we need to pray for everyone especially the 4 yr. old. I'm sure his family is devasated.
