Andrew, why was the name of the Victim, the Mother: Laura Labriola, given in this horrible and tragic accident and not the name of the 76-year old Driver (that has now been cited for Operating to Endanger which is a serious charge)? I would think that you would have wanted to protect the name and privacy of the Victim (and her two underage children), who were innocently walking when they were struck, and not the Driver right? All I can wonder is that something tragic must have happened to the Driver, at the age of 76-years old, that they would have not seen the Victim and her two underage children (one being pushed in a stroller)? I also have to wonder why this 76-year old Driver was driving all alone, at their age, to a Dialysis Appointment? I would have hoped that a family member might have accompanied them on these appointments? My heart (and prayers) go out to Laura Labriloa and her two children (especially her 20-month old son that is now recovering from a, very serious and painful, broken pelvis). He has a long (and painful) road to a full recovery to go!

Hi Kathleen, I'll check with the Concord Patch editor to see why the name of the driver wasn't released, they ran the story first. If they can get a name of the driver, I'll add that as an update.
