Youth Totals Car on Way to Lay Flowers at Memorial to Little Sister’s Fatal Bike Accident Five Years Ago

On the way home, traffic was backed up as I drove down Lake Avenue from the Main Beach.

View looking east of our home on Lake Avenue.

I saw flashing blue lights.

Reconstruct this accident.

Reconstruct this accident.

As I got closer, it seems quite close to where we live.

The day lilies seem unharmed.

Turns out an accident was right in front of our mailbox.

Meridian Street wasn’t blocked so I could get in our driveway.

Since the ambulance was still there, I figured there were no serious injuries.

Besides the loss of the car, the young man suffered a bigger tragedy five years ago.

His little sister was struck while riding her bike on North Avenue a block or so west of the Little Store.

She died as a result of the accident.

The young man was on the way to put flowers at the roadside memorial of a little angel.

What’s the loss of a car?

  1. Did you just get into town?

    It’s been the General Store for 60 years, not the Little Store!

  2. I believe they are talking about the now closed store that used to be below where Pinemoor Pizza was. (Kind of kiddy corner from the village hall.)

  3. News flash, the title of the article is “Youth Totals Car on Way to Lay Flowers at Memorial to Little Sister’s Fatal Bike Accident Five Years Ago”

    Who cares about the store.

  4. It seems that someone got up this morning on the wrong side of her bed

  5. Sympathies to the young man’s family for the loss of their little girl.

    It didn’t say whether the accident was his fault but I hope all drive more carefully in the future.

  6. Jgjm6?

    The driver in the rear is always at fault. (You are supposed to see what is in front of you no matter what happens.)

    Quite a while back, my son tried to explain that to his grown son that had rear ended someone.

    Try getting that through to this generation!

  7. What a horrible day in the community.

    No ones fault.

    Little sister blasting behind big brother crossing the road.

    One misses the car.

    The other doesn’t look and gets spun off the side of the car.

    These are the days the toughest of the tough weep as they place the tiny broken body in Flight for Life in the West Elementary field…

    May God comfort and keep all involved.

    No ones fault.

    The very definition of “tragedy”.

  8. Are you making that up, Priest?

    The little girl was killed five years ago!

    I don’t recall all those details.

    Of course, I don’t recall half of the stuff I used to.
