Georgia Boy Killed Boarding School Bus Shoved Little Brother Out of the Way
MOULTRIE, GA. – October 31, 2018 (walb.com) The 10-year-old boy from Moultrie, Georgia, who was killed October 25 while trying to board a school bus reportedly shoved his little brother out of the way before they were both struck by a vehicle. His brother is expected to make a full recovery, according to an online news story from walb.com.*
Shortly before 7 a.m. on October 25, a Colquitt County school bus was stopped on Thigpin Trail in Moultrie with its stop arm extended and lights flashing. Two brothers, ages 10 and 7, were walking across the road to board the bus, and a Kia attempted to pass the bus, striking both boys.
Both boys were airlifted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, and the 10-year-old boy was then transferred by helicopter to a hospital in Macon. The 10-year-old boy died later that day. The 7-year-old boy is expected to make a complete recovery, according to the boys’ mother, Amanda Wolfe. Both boys’ names have been released in local media but withheld from this story for privacy reasons.
Wolfe said she believes her 10-year-old son sacrificed his life for his younger brother. Before the car struck them, the older boy pushed his little brother out of the car’s direct path, Wolfe said. She believes the selflessness of one of her sons saved the other.
The driver of the car that struck the two brothers, 25-year-old Monica Cutts, of Tallahassee, Florida, was arrested at the scene. She has been charged with first-degree vehicular homicide, a school bus stop violation, serious injury by vehicle, and driving with a suspended license, and she is being held in the Colquitt County Jail without bond.
