Police: Driver Texting Kills Infant in Car Crash

“BREMERTON, Wash. — Kitsap County investigators believe texting and driving led to a crash that killed a 6-month-old boy.

Little Enzo Williams sat in the back seat of his family’s car which was stopped at a red light near Bremerton. And now, state troopers say the man accused of smashing his SUV into the back of the Williams’ family car admits to texting on his cell phone right before the impact.

Troopers say Sydney Wright typed-away as he approached the Williams’ car. At first, they say he denied being on his cell phone, but then investigators told him they’d subpoena his records.

“And it was at that time that he admitted he was sending a text,” said Trooper Krista Hedstrom.

While Wright is charged, he’s not behind bars and no arrest warrant has been issued. Prosecutors wouldn’t say why.

Enzo’s mom, dad and brother and sister walked away from the crash without injuries. Enzo sat closest to the impact and suffered a fractured skull and a bruised windpipe. A couple of days laster, he passed away.”

  1. We paid the goverment employees people who were suppost to be watching out for the good of the public john q civial servents. The public of america during the bush administration paid the wall street watch dogs our tax dollars to wtch porn on the internet 24/7 and allowed wall street giants like bank america, G.S. G.M. and the rest of the lot walk away with all our tax dollars, all our savings all our investments, our jobs, our homes. Then the goverment turned right around increased the national dept and borrowed money from the fed and lowned it to the already over flowing well of greedy corp Giants because they were broke? Oh what an idiot I am. Oh and lets not forget the bush famly business OIL OIL OIL hello BP go hide groverment watch dogs watch porn too everyone else in goverment is. Iraq oil war. Afganistan another Vietnam. We should have learned our lessons when the russans were not able to defeat afganistan 10 years and left with their tails between their legs. Yes I’m a fool

  2. Where was the FCC when the big corp cell phone giants unleashed this demon on the people of the us? I guess them big boys weighed out the cost of lives against the greed to be rich and went with the green.
    The Fcc must have been on line with the goverment watch dogs on wall street watching porn and getting paid by john q while John q was loseing their money , homes, jobs we were paying public servants to watch porn all day. Anyone ever know what the goverment did about it? Stuff like that kind of gets swept under the carpet. We sure as hell are going to hell for leaving this world in the mess it’s in to our children. I am an idiot to think that we the american people are going to do anything about the murder of children and the rape of children why I’m the only fool around here.

      Hi Darrell,

      It can be discouraging. Part of the reason I started my Blog was because of the title. I wanted people to wake up to the fact that evil sits at the dinner table. It is most often not the scraggly-haired guy on the street corner, or jobless man who lives in a trailer, or priest who is molesting, physically abusing, and raping kids. It is normal-looking, respected, nicely-dressed, church-going, and often married people.

      It’s fathers, step-fathers, uncles, brothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, and sometimes mothers and sisters, who sexually abuse kids.

      But people don’t WANT to hear it. Ms. Understood wants feelgood news, and “hope.” Well I have news for those like Ms. Understood; they are a huge part of the problem.

      I once asked a neighbor if she realizes how many fathers have sex with their daughters. She told me, “I don’t want to know.”

      I went to a birthday party on the night that America dropped its first bombs on Iraq. I was very upset about it and spoke of it at a birthday party. I was told, “This is a birthday party, we don’t talk about that kind of thing here.”

      All we can do is put our little grain of sand out there in whatever way we can, and one day, maybe we will see a difference. It takes a willingness to hear the most disgusting stories and the most vile acts, and then a willingness to do something about it –to be driven to action.

      I think it was Saint Augustine who said, “hope has two beautiful daughters; anger and courage. Anger at the way things are and the courage to change it.” That to me is HOPE, not feelgood stories and living in lala land of the flowers and the weather, or parties and bars, football and reality TV shows. Life is hard. Life is about pain and suffering. These stories must be spoken of and talked about. Victims WANT people to know. They want to be heard, even if they are dead, victims want the ugly truth told.

        Hey Serieve,

        About the birthday party. First off, it was a party for a 37 year-old friend of mine. There were maybe 50-60 adults, in a backyard, fire-pit going, alcohol flowing. It wasn’t a small get together inside a home. Even if it had been, I don’t like people telling me what I can or cannot say. Who has the right to do that?

        Secondly, there isn’t going to be any “person” to celebrate at a birthday party if human beings, especially Americans, don’t get their act together and stop atrocities like the Iraq war. If it isn’t ‘acceptable’ conversation at a party where it IS ‘acceptable’ to talk about sports and drinking, bars, clothes shopping etc. then Americans are making their own bed.

        Europeans aren’t afraid to express themselves, anywhere, and anytime. They don’t worry about being ‘socially or politically acceptable.’ Maybe because Europeans have experienced war and know the hell of war and starvation, and losing their homes to bombs.

        There were no children at the party, or anywhere near me at the time. I am not oblivious to the fact that children get upset.
