According to The Salt Lake Tribune, on Wednesday, June 22, a 72-year-old man ran over 4-year-old Cole Mair at 9180 N. 2160 W. in Neola. The driver of the truck had stopped to speak to Cole’s mother as she walked down the side of the road. When he drove away, he didn’t see Cole as he rode his bike in front of the truck and ran over him. Cole was killed instantly.
How horrifying it must have been for this mother as she watched, helplessly, as her child was run over by a truck and be unable to save him. My prayers are with Cole’s family as they mourn his loss in this completely tragic accident.
