NY - Saquan Williams, 3, killed by drunk driver, Bronx, 1 Aug 2005
A delivery truck with a drunken prankster behind the wheel raced out of control down a Bronx street yesterday and killed a 3-year-old boy as it left a horrific swath of broken bodies and damaged cars in its wake, police said.
Little Saquan Gibbs was crushed shortly before 5 p.m. while crossing Mount Eden Ave. with his mother, Tasha, 24, and her friend Giselle Buie, 20.
Both women were in Lincoln Hospital in critical condition. Cops said they and Saquan were thrown dozens of feet by the truck.
Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

From July 2008:
A Bronx man who ran down a 3-year-old boy during a drunken prank was sentenced yesterday to a maximum 5 to 15 years in prison...
[Freddy] Rodriguez, convicted of manslaughter last month, got behind the wheel of a friend’s idling truck in August 2005, blew a red light, and plowed into Gibbs, her friend Giselle Buie and little Saquan “Noodles” Williams.
