"The boy was taken to Samaritan Hospital and then Albany Med where he later died.

Now, the little boy's family is grieving.

"I mean, he tore up. He's messed up. I've been to the hospital. He's bad shape. He's gone forever. Never coming home no more," said Philip Pompey, the victimís grandfather.

The boy's family also says, like police, they are looking for answers."

This is what the article says"...Troy where the little boy's family members say they want to know what happened"..the family doesnt know casue no one was watching him, Id like to know where they were. Parents stop being lazy watch your children..That being said, my prayers for both sides, the officer(i know hes shook up too) and the boys family.

My 5 yr old knows not to go in the road cause I taught her not to. She wont even step off the curb without an adult.

I can remember my own being older than 5 and not ever allowing them to be out alone..especially near a road or street..
This child was with a cousin but the cousin was also young..Even when being taught..a child is still a child and anything can happen..

My heart goes out to the the friends..and also to the officer..This was just a very sad unfortunate accident..
