  • I hope this little one is ok :(


  • I am shocked the just drove off without making sure he was ok and waiting until someone had come to help him!


  • And she drove away?? I hope they will find her.
    And I hope the child will recover soon!!


  • Though very wrong – she is probably young and scared. To think you may have hit and killed someone. .. glad the child is ok


  • I hope he will be ok and they catch her


  • That’s really bad! Run over a small child and can’t even be bothered to hang around to wait and see if he’s ok :/


  • I hope his OK. I also hope they get the driver, how can you not render assistance after accident especially when child was involved.

    • I hope the boy makes a full recovery, not only physically but physologically too.
      I hope they catch the driver. She will get a few charges for her action.
      Not only the actual accident but leaving the scene of the accident and failing to render assistance. Hopefully somebody got the car registration number and the driver will be tracked down. I just hope it isn’t a stolen car.
