From the Wisconsin State Journal: A 7-year-old boy who was picnicking with his family died Tuesday after a vehicle left Mineral Point Road, hit a tree and landed on the picnic table behind a business in University Research Park on Madison's West Side.
The Dane County Medical Examiner's Office identified the boy as Aiden Mueller.
The boy's 36-year-old mother was critically injured, but stable Wednesday, said Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain....
According to police:
The family was having dinner at a picnic
table at about 6 p.m. when a driver went off Mineral Point Road and hit
a small tree. The vehicle then went airborne and landed on the picnic
The driver of the vehicle, who was not injured, might have had a medical condition at the time of the crash.
said the 59-year-old Madison woman got out of her car after the crash
and "was wandering around and appeared disoriented."
Your out on a picnic with your family, minding your own business, far away from the road the traffic and then all of a sudden, a car literally flies through the air and kills a 7 year old boy. How can you even explain this. An act of God?
I am not an atheist, but it's incident's like this that make you really wonder why.
