I never knew Chris Dale, a boy in Blue Coat, year 10. But he was the best friend of my friend Sammie, last night he was hit by a car while waiting to cross with her.
He was killed and it was a few inches off her, and her and her friends saw everything.. that's going to scar them for a long time.
No doubt it'll be on the news and they'll have an assembly about it. His sister had to identify the body and his parents were back on the first flight home from France.
I can't begin to imagine what they're going through.
