Tragic

Simply No Words....

Steven Curtis Chapman’s youngest child died Wednesday evening after being struck by a car driven by her teenage brother in the driveway of the family’s Williamson County home.

The 5-year-old was hit by an SUV driven by her teenage brother, she said. Police did not give the driver’s name.


The teen was driving a Toyota Land Cruiser down the driveway of the rural home at about 5:30 p.m. and several children were playing in the area, McPherson said. He did not see Maria in the driveway before the vehicle struck her, she said.

“It appears to be a terrible accident,’’ McPherson said. (taken from Tennessean)

Pray for the Chapman Family

Oh my gosh. I hadn't heard. That is awful. I'll pray for their family. I have a five year old myself. I just can't imagine.
