Lithonia mom talks about son's tragic death


A mother who has waited a year to face the woman accused of killing her son while he was crossing the street to go to school found out she'll have to keep waiting.

"They just grow so fast and change so much that I just can't imagine what he would be like right now," said Karen Dunmore.

Dunmore wipes away tears as she thinks about her son Kameron.

"I hear his voice, I see his smile, constantly in my mind," said Dunmore.

The straight A student would have turned 9 in May.

"I still can't comprehend what happened because he was in the crosswalk, the crossing guard was there, everything that was supposed to be done, was," said Dunmore.

Kameron was crossing the street to school in February 2009 when police say the driver of a SUV ignored a hand-held stop sign, and drove through the crosswalk, hitting and killing Kameron.

"That's the hardest part for me, just knowing what he endured the last few minutes, just seeing the SUV coming, not stopping," said Dunmore.

Dunmore prepared to face that driver in court Wednesday, as she had done before. Instead, she learned late Tuesday the case was pushed back yet again.

"It just keeps being pushed back, keeps being pushed back and we're just ready to have some type of closure," said Dunmore.

Dunmore wishes every day that all drivers would stay aware when behind the wheel.

"It just takes a second to change a person life, just a second and I just want people to be careful," said Dunmore.

Dunmore is not sure why court was delayed this time. The driver, Shirley Ogilvie, is charged with misdemeanor vehicular homicide, and faces a maximum of one year in prison and a $1,000 fine if convicted. Dunmore thinks she should have to do community service, and have her license taken away.
