Toddler celebrating his second birthday killed in the driveway of his own home.

Two year old, Kingston Fugawai’s  mother said she hoped the accident would encourage people to be more aware of their surroundings when they were behind the wheel of a car.

“You’re the only one in control of the vehicle,” Loami Fugawai, 23, told The Daily Telegraph.

“You need to be aware of yourself and your surroundings as well. You can never be too sure of yourself.”

“I love him so much … I’m going to miss everything about him,” Ms Fugawai said yesterday.

“He was a strong boy, he was very independent. He was always very, very happy. He was a loving person­ and always had a smile.”

“He and his brother would always be together. The past few days have been so hard,” she said.

“My family came to help however they could.”

Little Kingston was hit by a Mazda 3 as it drove into the Fugawai family­’s driveway on New Year’s Eve. The 23-year-old driver, who was believed to have been attending festivities at the home, was taken for blood and alcohol testing.

A police spokeswoman said investigations were ongoing and no charges had been laid.

RIP little man. Our thoughts are with family and friends.

  • Such a terrible thing to have happened. RIP little man.
    Perhaps we should go back to training our children some road sense – look to the right, the left and then the right again. Don’t walk behind a car or other vehicle. Don’t run out on to the street. Look before you run out to get your ball, etc.
    It seemed to work in the old days.


  • It seems we need to keep our children indoors or divide the front yard by using an “open”(not glass) pool type fence with a high childproof gate……and hope nobody hits it. Yes, a friend of mine had one hit by a car that was out of control because of a driver going too fast.


  • This is my biggest fear with little ones around where i live atm. They have no supervision at all and run amok. The parents need to keep an eye on the kids or this will happen again. RIP little one


  • oh no the poor little guy R.I.P.
