The Courier Press is reporting that the 4 year old daughter of a 9th District Congressional Candidate was killed after being struck by a car in a parking lot. Demiah Bottorff, daughter of John Bottorff, was walking with her family in the parking lot of a K-mart in Jasper, Indiana. Jerome Kline, an 89 year old man, had pulled out of the space but then started forward without adjusting his course.
Klein then became confused and accelerated instead of braking, striking Demiah. Klein’s 2002 Ford Taurus reportedly then struck a parked vehicle and continued forward over a concrete slab, hitting another parked vehicle and sideswiping a concrete post.
Just horrible. I can’t even imagine what that must be like for the Bottorff family.
