Five kids killed by cars in five weeks, the most recent of which was a 9yo in Brooklyn:
Less than a month earlier, on Oct. 11, a drunk driver killed 3-year-old Olvin Jahir Figueroa in Queens. Samuel Cohen Eckstein, 12, died in Brooklyn on Oct. 8 after being run over by a delivery van. On Oct. 6, 3-year-old Allison Liao was struck and killed in a Queens crosswalk. And Kiko Shao, 5, died in Brooklyn on Sept. 26 after being hit by an S.U.V.Seriously, people, it's like a city parent's fulltime job X2 to teach their kid not to run into the street.
