So Very Sad

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The 5-year-old daughter of contemporary Christian
music star Steven Curtis Chapman was struck and killed Wednesday by a sport
utility vehicle driven by her brother, authorities said.
The girl, Maria, was
hit in a driveway on the family residence Wednesday afternoon by a Toyota Land
Cruiser driven by her teenage brother, said Laura McPherson, a spokesman for the
Tennessee Highway Patrol.
McPherson said no charges are expected.
looks like a tragic accident," she said.
She said several members of the
Chapman family witnessed the accident, which happened in Williamson County just
south of Nashville.
The brother apparently did not see the little girl,
McPherson said. She did not have the name or exact age of the brother, only that
he is an older teenager.
The girl died later at Vanderbilt Medical Center,
hospital spokeswoman Laurie Holloway said.

I know, I would hate to know what her brother is going through right now. What a load to carry around and have to deal with. I cannot imagine. Only through God's grace could he get through it for sure.
