A picture of a child playing in leaves at the edge of a road is getting lots of attention online. A UPS driver took the photo in Elkhart to serve as a warning for drivers, parents and children.
Jordan Weaver was making deliveries in Elkhart for UPS when he spotted the child.
“Luckily I parked across the street from the stop, so I didn’t see the child until after I made the delivery. So I immediately grabbed my phone, and went and asked the mother if I could take a picture you know,” said Weaver.
It’s just one of the many dangerous situations Weaver sees frequently.
“Countless times a day. Distracted driving is the main one. You see so many people on their phones not paying attention to the roads around them. Especially in neighborhoods like this.”
He hopes the photo makes everyone pay more attention when they get behind the wheel.
