A 2-year-old is left paralyzed from the neck down due to a road rage incident.
There are a lot of stories about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is one of them. It’s the story about a 2-year-old boy who started his day happy and laughing, ready to go for a ride with his dad to daycare.
When his dad picked him up at the end of the day, they made their way home. Suddenly, the man heard tires squealing and saw a white pickup truck heading towards them. He slammed on the brakes of his Saturn SL2. The impact came next, and it was horrific. He asked witnesses who came over to help to get his toddler from the back seat. No one could find him.
When they did find him, he was in the trunk. The force of the impact slammed him through the seat and back wall of the truck. He was not breathing, and a bystander administered CPR. When paramedics arrived, they revived him and took him to the hospital, where a medical team treated him and found he was paralyzed from the neck down.
This accident happened on a stretch of road well noted for accidents like this one. In this case, two other drivers imbued with road rage were chasing one another at high speeds. Both were in the oncoming lanes heading towards the small Saturn. After the wreck, both drivers denied they were in an argument, but eyewitness reports say one of the drivers appeared to have braked suddenly, causing the other one to rear-end him. The first driver lost it, and the chase was on.
But for two idiots who should have known better, a little boy’s life was left in ruins. He won’t be able to play with other kids or hold a book to read. That is a high price to pay for someone else’s short-sighted stupidity.
