  1. Did the driver of the sprayer stop? Because his family told us otherwise and that he feels badly for the kid, and many eye witnesses watched both occupants run the stop sign. Also the boy was struck by the rear wheel of the tractor and is still hospitalised undergoing surgery’s everyday. He’s expecting a full recovery thanks to his doctors, friends, and most important his family. The boys been riding ATVs for many years but was unable to shift due to a brake fluid leak. Accidents happen, but this was a full on collision!
