    A friend of ours lost her son here in Whittier. He was struck by a semi truck which dragged him 40 feet. He was on his way home from school. He was pronouced dead at the scene of the accident. His name was Elijah Valdez. His mother is a very, very, close friend of my wife's. It has been hard for my wife. As a parent, I thought that I would share this with you. I can imagine the heartache his family is going through! I could not deal with the loss of any of my children. Please keep Elijah and his family in your prayers. Thanks.

    As hard on the family as this is, I would venture the truck driver isn't in that great a shape either. I'm sure hitting a kid is every driver's worst nightmare. It is mine.
    Thots & prayers.

    That's awful, I feel for them. With a CDL, you're always at fault. You know, guilty until proven innocent.

    Until the Coroner finishes the autopsy, then the police will make the call on whose fault it is.
