In Tennessee and other States, parents send their children to school with the hope and expectation that the child will be educated and supervised in a safe environment. Unfortunately, some children suffer serious personal injuries and some even die while on school grounds or while engaged in a school related activity or field trip. In Whitehaven, Tennessee, it was reported that Anthony Scott (age 6) was hit by a day care by a Pee Wee Wisdom Child Care Center. A full investigation will be conducted as to the cause and preventability of such an accident.
The incident took place in the parking lof of Oakshire Elementary School. During the investigation, it is expected that school and law enforcement officials will review videotapes (if any are available), school policy and protocol, and witness statements regarding the incident. No matter the outcome of the investigation, the death of Anthony Scott is certainly a tragic loss to his family, school, neighborhood, and community.
