    who had a baby out at 2AM?? Was it in a carseat and it stil sustained those serious injuries? How about some more details?

    Who knows y the child was out that late but the car the child was in flipped multiple times on impact the suv that hit the car with the toddler was speeding

    It IS possible that they were coming home from picking the child up at the babysitters. You know not everyone who has children goes home when the street lights turn on. For all you know it could have been the parents’ date night, or a concert they went to or whatever. Not everyone who is driving their kid home at 2 am is a bad parent.

    Prayers for this baby and family. And I didn’t get my kids home and in bed till 3:15 am. We were coming back from being out of town and got a flat tire that held us up for hours because my full size spare was not drive able and we just bought the car and didn’t think to look before going on a trip. Quit being so judgemental.
