Search for missing 7-year-old set to resume Sunday morning

What if he was there with grandparents or aunts/uncles? What does it matter where the parents were? It could happen to anyone whether the parents were watching or not. Have some respect.

Eudora mayor asking Brownback to install median cable barriers after deadly crash on K-10

geekin_topekan : While it is true that K-10 isn't the problem, until we live in a perfect world & no one gets behind the wheel drunk/high or in poor health and no one texts/facebooks/yaps on their cellphone, I want better safety measures in place.

merrill: assuming Mr. Pittman was leaving Eudora, he had only seconds from the time he left the off ramp to the time he crashed. That wouldn't have given law enforcement enough time to have suspicion to pull him over.

ksarmychick...yes, actually she is. My 3 girls & I were hit head-on by a drunk driver 5 years ago. We were only going 30 mph & I didn't have time to react. My two oldest were in boosters/seatbelts, in the very backseat & only suffered minor bruising. The baby was rear-facing in the middle (minivan driver) and didn't have a scratch on her.

Experts say it is nearly impossible for the average person to react in less than 2 seconds & for two vehicles traveling at 70 mph, you wouldn't have that long. Personally, I'd pay anything to NEVER AGAIN have to listen to another mom weep at her child's funeral.

What scares me the most, is that fact that this could very easily have been anyone of us. My mom, who lives in JoCo, & I always call each other to say we got home safely when traveling to/from each other's homes. I can't count how many times I hit the exit ramp & thought "Whew! I made it." They were seconds from hitting that ramp.

Praying for the Shutt & Pittman families.

Do it not only for Cainen, but also for all the others that have also lost their lives & their grieving friends & family.
