Cell phone, radio, whatever, something. The boy was obviously distracted in some way and not watching what was in front of him. It was broad daylight on a beautiful sunny day.

Just wondering where in this short article does it mention a Cell Phone?

farmbum I take it you are a "people" so sorry you don't pay attention or have respect.

My condolences to Mr Nelson's family.

Makes one wonder about driving. People just don't pay attention and have zero respect for what is around them.

Put down the phone and watch for motorcycles, people!

Rest in peace, man. Sad.
