Default Just saw a kid get hit by a truck :( - Long Beach

I was on Anaheim with my gf near Cherry and we were getting back in the car when I saw ahead on the next block someone running to the driver door of a work truck. The car ahead of me had a couple women now in the street looking to the same place and she was yelling to call 911. My girl called and we got out of the car to see what happened. As we crossed the street I picked up an skateboard laying on the corner near the street and put it against the pole so nobody would fall on it in the commotion, and I started hearing people say that someone got hit. The people in front of the truck were getting someone out from in front of the drivers front tire and when they sat him on the curb I saw it was just a boy. He was conscious and talking but his shirt was ripped to a rag around his waist and his pants had big holes in them, his back and arms were scraped very badly like road rash and worst of all when he turned around the side of his head was scraped down to past the skull it looked like. I put the pieces together and I think somehow the kid got caught at the corner while skating and got hit and dragged like 30 feet under this truck. I'm glad he didn't go under the tire but still he was in bad shape. A man helping him yelled at the fire truck to hurry because his brain was coming out. People were helping, they wrapped the kids head up, sat him up, and gave him water, and the cops and a fire truck showed up within minutes. I don't know if the kid just went into the street without looking or the driver wasn't paying attention...I hope the kid somehow is ok.

We hear about **** like this all the time, accidents, beatings, deaths, and it doesn't really hit home like when it happens right in front of you. I just feel kinda weird now cuz this kid is laid up somewhere and in bad shape.

That sucks man, but it soundsl ike he'll live.

One of my close friends saw a kid get hit/killed by a car when he was younger. He was stopped at a light and a little kid was passing across the street in front of him and somebody ran a red light and hit him full speed... sending the kid flying through the air. My friends also stayed until the ambulance/cops/etc got there and also had to witness the mother arriving to the scene to find her son dead. Pretty ****ed up.

Maybe one day your son or daughter will get hit by a car, and you can chalk it up to Darwinism.

Mother ****er.


Hope the kid is OK, post the news story if they write one tomorrow.

If thats true you should be worried...I don't see how its remotely funny to joke about a kid who got seriously hurt even if you don't mean it.

Aside from that nonsense, if an official story comes up I'll try to find and post it.

I was maybe 15 feet away and it looked like his head was scraped either to the skull or beyond. there was skin and blood on the edges of the hole and it was white/gray ish and some blood in the middle. From what I saw nothing had come completely out of his head but it looked like there was something inside that was exposed.

I find both funny and hypocritical how GDD can be so overwhelmed with sympathy for a kid getting hit by a car - yet in another thread talk about how war is a necessary evil, how we need population control, and that countries that cannot support themselves financially and agriculturally should just die off.

Absolutely amazing....

Don't include me, I hate that ****. It's very easy to say war/famine/genocide is necessary when you're not affected by it. And the stupid darwin sayings are even worse.

ok I'm going with blame the parents. It works for both parties. If the accident was the kids fault his parents are at fault for not telling him to be more careful and or supervising him better.

If it's the drivers fault his parents needed to teach him that driving is important and he needs to give it his full attention.


Bad parenting is bad

That's good to hear. I guess sometimes the outspoken idiocy of GDD makes one believe its the standard.

that's why there are laws against J-walking. You ever drive along the road and all of a sudden you drive by 2 cars and see people standing between them just waiting to cross? It gives you a quick surprise, you never even knew they were there.

i hope you get hit by a truck and dragged down the street only to end up having the tire go over you. THEN we could make a super cool thread on karma and darwinism.
