In Lake County, Florida and other places, tragedies take place that are never expected or planned for. It was reported by the Orlando Sentinel that a 10 year old boy Nathan Hayes was hit by a vehicle. Nathan was standing off of the side of the road as instructed by his father. The boy and his father had swerved off the road due to a tree being in the road from a storm. Another vehicle veered off the side of the road when the driver saw the tree and the vehicle previously occupied by Nathan. Unfortunately, this driver hit Nathan and the injuries from this impact ended the life of this 10 year old boy. The death of Nathan Hayes was certainly a traffic loss for his family, friends, school, and community. See Fatal Crash Reported in Lake County, Florida.
