A two-year-old boy was hit by a car in the Liberty Arms apartment complex. Police identified the child as Bryalon Lee. Sikia Clayton lives in the neighborhood with her children and said it is common to see other kids playing around in all of areas of the apartment complex, including the parking lot where the toddler was killed.
"My heart hurts," Clayton said. "That could've been my son, anybody's son."
Tyler Police said the driver was moving at a slow-speed through the parking lot when the child ran in front of the car. Clayton said the death of a neighbor's child isn't easy to cope with. She said this accident is a reminder to pay close attention to her children as they play.
