Awful: 12 Year Old Kid Chasing Ball Killed On PPW

12-Year-Old Park Slope Boy Struck & Killed By Van Driver
Just terrible.  With a two year old and an eleven year old in the house, this is basically my worst nightmare. 

Without pre-supposing anything about this case - our next police chief had better pay more attention to street safety enforcement.  Our current troglodytic chief Ray Kelly doesn't get it.
"A 12-year-old boy was struck and killed in Park Slope yesterday after he ran out into the street to retrieve his ball. Police say Samuel Cohen-Eckstein was playing right outside his apartment on Prospect Park West and 3rd Street at around 5:15 p.m. when he ran out into PPW to chase his soccer ball and was struck by a commercial van.
