Condolences to the father/husband who lost his family. I am just curious: was the monument privately paid for or it is a public marker to commemorate the death of the woman and child?

Indeed, condolences to the families and all those injured.

Also curious about the monument, it seems to be extremely large, is it in the street or sidewalk? Is it meant to be permanent?

It is build in a park near the intersection where the accident occurred. It was build by Toyoshima Ward with contributions collected from all over Japan. The round shaped monument symbolizes the numeric "0", a wish and prayer for elimination of all accidents.
