18 month old baby killed in her own yard by minivan

What do you guys think? I sense some type of foul play here. It happened here in my hometown on Thursday. I was devasted, but I feel the family is hiding something.

  • How did the baby even get out of the house? Why was the child in way of the minivan? I have so many questions but the police here is keeping this one on the hush right now for some reason.

  • That is one of my fears. If I leave the house and my 3 year old is staying home. I literally get out and check the back of my car twice before driving off. It just takes a second. They can run out. It happens so often. So tragic.

  • If she was in her yard then she wouldn't have been in the way of the minivan. Something similar happened to a class mate of mines niece, a drunk driver drove right into her sister fenced garden and killed her 2 year old.

  • I agree with all of you moms. I do a roll call to make sure everyone is in the van. I cannot grasp on to losing a baby 18 months. I have so many questions for the mother, but unfortunately the story is on a quiet mode for now.
