    Really….a grey sedan? Who told you this information? It was a dark grey soccer mom mini VAN not a sedan. The boy went underneath and his arm was run over ripping his hand apart at the wrist. I do know there was an obstruction ie a large van parked in the circle but she still shouldn’t have been going fast enough around the small circle not to see the boy. There are ALWAYS kids riding their bikes in our circle. It didn’t help that the driver didn’t speak english. She drove completely over him to where the bike was past the front wheel under the vehicle.
