RIP to the little boy. And to add to all this misery it's likely going to become a massive blame game between the spouses.

This kind of accident can rip a family apart. I really hope they get through this together and their wounds heal in time.

Very unfortunate.Parents of small kids should take extra care while parking their cars.

If you've had five children, you know by now how they are and should take extra care. Perhaps he was distracted by the three in his car.
