Friends dedicate game of hide and seek to boy killed crossing highway
PORT ARTHUR-By: Leslie Rangel
Police are still trying to piece together what happened during a fatal accident in Port Arthur that left a 10-year-old boy dead.
Port Arthur police say Tyvone Washington was coming from Central Mall when he tried to run across a highway with a group of friends.
The other boys made it across safely, but Tyvone was hit by a Volvo SUV.
A judge pronounced the boy dead at the scene.
The boy was a student at Booker T. Washington Elementary in Port Arthur.
His friends share what they remember about his young life.
What away to spend a sunny spring Sunday, outdoors enjoying the sun With a short game of hide and seek.
"He was fun to play with," Larry Doyle, his 3rd grade friend says.
Doyle remembers playtime with his friend Tyvone.
"He was in the fourth grade and I was in the third grade," Doyle said.
It's never easy to say good-bye to a friend you love, especially when you're in third grade.
"Hide and go seek and tag and freeze tag and we used to play we used to go to the pool all the time," Doyle says after we asked what he and Tyvone liked to do.
Tyvone's friends try to cope.
They've dedicated this playtime to Tyvone.
"I will miss him with all my heart, rest in peace Tyvone, I'll miss you," Nakia Reynolds, another friend says.
"He was like a brother to me too, it was like stick together, grow up together," Trinnady Bailey another friend said.
It's hard for anyone, even these youngsters, to understand the ten-year-old boy took his last breath trying to cross Interstate 69 late Saturday night.
"Why are you crying right now?" we ask Bailey, "Because I miss him," Bailey says.
"I miss you Tyvone, I hope you have a blessed day, I love you Tyvone," his school mate Faith Doyle said.
A friend now gone, remembered for his speed in hide and go seek.
This game in memory of him.
"I hope he is in heaven right now," Michael Bowser, another friend said.
"Look what the clouds say!" Bailey says.
We check it out and see no words.
"What do you think he's doing in heaven? Playing and seeing God" Bowser says.
But in child-like faith we look again and see the clouds Tyvone is playing on up in heaven.
Police are still investigating why the children were trying to cross the highway.
