Maine Boy Accidentally Killed by Father’s Snow Plow


A 6-year-old boy was killed yesterday when he was hit by a snow-plow truck that was driven by his father, Reuters reports.

In Greene, Maine, 36-year-old Kevin Capponi was backing up in his truck to finish plowing his driveway after Tuesday’s snowstorm, and did not see his young son, Nathan, playing on a scooter right behind him. He accidentally hit the boy at 6:45 am, and he was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Kevin Capponi said “Please forgive me and my family,” on his Facebook page.
