Another eye witness to the incident had this to say:  “They were crossing and the officer saw the truck coming and she signaled for it to stop, which it didn’t until it ran over the child. The driver claimed his brakes had “dropped in”. Only the child who was completely run over punched his forehead and had bruises.
The other child sustained damage to his foot.”
