Sidewalk Memorial

Waterbury, Connecticut

This memorial is on the sidewalk on South Main Street a few blocks from the center of town, against the cyclone fence of a tire dealer. It's common to see shrines like this at the site of car crashes on highways and country roads but I don't recall seeing one in the middle of a city before. All I could think of was that a car must have hopped the sidewalk and killed a child. A couple of online searches turned up the story, which sadly is just what I'd guessed, except worse.
