Family who lost toddler in traffic accident has a message
BEAUMONT - The family of a two-year-old boy hit and killed by a car in north Beaumont is speaking out in an effort to help save children's lives.
Police say the driver who hit Christopher Stelly III wasn't speeding. However, the family's message on Sunday is for drivers who do.
Family members have made signs that read slow down -- let our children live.
The signs are covered with pictures and things the toddler liked. Family members plan on making more signs to line the road where the accident happened on Feb. 16, in the 8100 block of Lawrence Drive.
Witnesses say the toddler ran out of the driveway onto the road when he was hit by a car.
The driver told police she did not see the child in the road. Police determined she wasn't speeding and no charges were filed.
