At least five trick-or-treaters were killed this year in the United States, and even more were injured. The largest incident occurred in southern California where three teenagers were killed in a hit and run. The 13-year-olds were out trick-or-treating in Santa Ana, California when they were struck by a vehicle.
All three died at the scene. The driver of the vehicle sped away after the collision and has yet to be found.
Each year a number of reports come in detailing similar incidents. You may all remember this article by Lovett last year with his thoughts on the issue. The news further displays the importance of wearing reflective gear while walking on roads at night, and paying close attention while driving.
