Georgia community mourning death of 14-year-old pedestrian

The family of a 14-year-old boy who died after he was hit by a car is mourning his loss.

The teen was crossing Donald Lee Holloway Parkway in northwest Atlanta on Sept. 6 when he was hit by a Chevrolet Camaro. He was headed to the school bus, according to media reports. He died the following day at Grady Memorial Hospital.

An 11-year-old passenger in the Camaro suffered minor injuries, and a witness told Channel 2 in Atlanta that the driver was speeding. The woman driving the Camaro remained at the scene but had not yet been charged, pending investigation.

The teen's friends and family gathered for a memorial vigil the day after his death, and his mother spoke to mourners about both her anger with the driver and the love she shared with her son.

"My son was just crossing the street, and she came out of nowhere and hit my baby," the grieving mother said. "I know she's out there, but I want them to lock her up and I want them to throw away the key."

She said her son was a "mama's boy" and discussed the conversation she had with him before he headed to the bus stop.

"He came and hugged me and said, 'Mama, you OK?'" she remembered. "I said, 'Yeah, I'm OK.' He said, 'Alright then. I'm going to be right across the street if you need me.'"

This woman's loss is immense, and her son undoubtedly will be in her thoughts forever. In the immediate aftermath of his death, however, she likely will need help coping with medical bills and funeral expenses. An experienced attorney can work to help her to gain compensation for those costs so that she can focus other challenges awaiting her.
