A 7 year old Madras boy was killed Thursday morning when he darted out in a crosswalk in front of a pickup truck. Killed was Austin Hollenbeak-Hatch. He was struck by Dennis Kluser, 64, as he was turning left from D Street onto 5th Street in downtown Madras. Police have determined the pedestrian had a walk sign, and the driver had a green light. They also believe the morning sun was a factor in the collision. Austin's mom, Staci Philibert tells our news partner, News Channel 21, her kids we're doing anything wrong: “My boys were doing right. They were walking when the  crosswalk said “walk” and somebody didn’t pay attention. And didn’t see him, so me and my boys are going to have to suffer for the rest of our lives.” The boy was walking to the Madras Kids Club with his older brothers when he was hit. His brothers were not injured. The driver of the pickup was ticketed for careless driving and failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
