Lawmen: Woman Runs Over Her Child, Killing Him

A tragic accident in Currituck County on Saturday, in which Highway Patrol troopers says a woman did not see her 6-year-old son when she backed up over him in the driveway.

Sgt. Jeff Wilson of the Highway Patrol says the woman's name is Katheryn Moster. Wilson says he believes the child may have been playing with toys, and Moster did not see him while in her SUV.

The six-year-old died from his injuries at a Norfolk, Virginia hospital.

Wilson says no charges will be brought against Moster.

    This is really sad. My prayers go out to the family. And to J, accidents do happen, and I hope you never have one.

    I understand how some people can say she should have known her child was behind the SUV, but it was a mistake and no one should be blaming her! Personally, I'm psycho and always follow my daughter around, but mistakes do happen. I feel so bad for her and cannot imagine the pain she is going thru and will always go thru. My prayers go out to her and the family.

    To J, so you are saying that people are also ignorant when they are at work making a living supporting that child and they don't know that their missing kids are kidnapped when the school officials are responsible for keeping these kids safe? So you are saying that people are ignorant when they cant keep their child from getting run over a car in the school parking lot because they are making a living? That statement that says people are ignorant for this sounds ignorant in itself. You may want to reevaluate your statement so you will sound better.

    Regarding pay cuts: I was wondering why state official wasn't included in the pay-cut, after all they were the ones who create this crisis; therefore, they should help with the bailout.

    Like I said before, you shouldn't have called her ignorant. She has lost a child, something she can't ever get back. Have some sympathy and show it.

    Everyone should be praying for this family not critizing them. They just lost a love one and any real mother would be effected deeply by this lost. You guys shouldn't be so quick to judge this lady. You don't know the situation and she is going through enough without others adding to her stress. This could really happen to anyone, there is not no parent out there that can so that they are so perfect that accidents can't happen in your family.

    Obviously whoever is playing moderator today won't let me post anything. Like I said before, if I could see my earlier post, i would be able to clear up any confusion about be specifically calling this mother ignorant. Im sure it should read that in general, PEOPLE are ignorant for not knowing where the kids are if they know they have been outside playing. Plain and simple. Nothing wrong with this post.

    This is so horrible and I feel that way for the mother, the father, and the rest of the family and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, especially the mother. For all those criticizing, how about people should criticize you for criticizing the woman. If it was one of you, then you would feel the same way and don't deny that. I don't have any kids, but my wife and I would like to have about 2 or 3 to raise and see grow up. I cant imagine what I would go through as a dad if me or my wife had this happen to one of our future children. Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody guesses wrong on different things from time to time. The unexpected can happen at any time. With the law enforcement not charging the woman, they did the right thing. If it was the Greenville police, then the parent would get cheated out of lots of dollars. Losing your own child is a charge in itself, a lot worse of a charge than what the officer would put on you.

    This is one of my worst fears. This actually happens more than people realize, in driveways, parking lots, etc. Often, it occurs at family functions when there are many cars in the driveway and children are playing around. I am almost crazy over making sure my kids aren't behind parked cars, not to mention walking behind cars in parking lots. Let;s face it, we just can't see them...this is such an awful sad story and my heart truly goes out to the family. I know I can't keep my kids in a bubble, but I always do check behind me before I back up and warn others to look, also...
