Investigators said the woman, 36, and boy were hit by a pickup truck while in a driveway of a home.

Investigators say the driver is the husband of the woman and father of the boy…

The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warning signs” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result.
