Comments
  1. “No charges filed.” That is perhaps the biggest tragedy. And shame on CBS for not reporting how this happened. The driver claimed sun glare prevented her from seeing. Doesn’t that mean she should have pulled over rather than just drive blindly? Isn’t that reckless driving? She took a life. A kid’s life. Charges should be filed.
