  • It really sad that people think that accepting money from those that want to help in a tragedy is somehow taking advantage and that his refusal to accept money is more respectable than if he provided a go fund me or donation info.

    All of these families need help medical bills are expensive and it’s well known a majority of Americans don’t have $500 to spare for unexpected bills. Don’t be dumb. People are trying to help. Set up a go fund me if you are ever a victim of tragedy. Never forget that some people are always looking for a good cause to give their money to over Uncle Sam.

  • All could have been avoided. This is because of the way street vendors operate. Look, I get it, times are hard. These street vendors are trying to provide for their families, I get it. But the places they operate and set up are not the safest places. If he had some kind of agreement with the business or property located there then he (and other vendors like this) should really try and set up inside a parking lot away from public streetes and sidewalks. It's sad to hear news like this. Most are unlicenced and those that are should be locating themselves better, they put the people that visit them and themselves in this type of danger. The officials that are regulating this (the legal ones at least) should come up with a type of plan or rule set to go by to ensure better safety.

  • I love that the son was being humble but IMO they should set up a GoFundMe… The dad going to need physical therapy n if his back was already bad it's going to get worse with this impact. Hopefully he'll be ok but physical therapy isn't cheap n to top it off he now has a hand injury 😔 I'm praying for all the victims so they make a full recovery n for God to lessen their pain n worries thru this difficult time

    James Arias 24/10/2022 am3:42
  • Sue the county and the city.

    James Arias 24/10/2022 am3:42
  • This is sad hope they press charges we are venders and we are concerned for any other vender hope they recover and prayers to the love one that lost there love one

    Luis&Vero Vlog 24/10/2022 am3:42
  • This is one reason why "unlicensed" "un-permitted" street vendors are a bad idea. The city shouldn't allow vendors to set up anywhere and have a safe area for them to go do business. I hope the injured recover quickly and the driver responsible is held accountable!

    Jami Nova 24/10/2022 am3:42
  • Wow, nice young man, says no to go fund me. ❤️
