The 14 year old victim placed his hockey bag, full of equipment at the rear of the family vehicle.
The family, not realizing the equipment hadn’t been loaded, drove off, leaving it in the parking area.

He was accompanied by the female shown in the photos. They rode the trolley to the Potomac stop in Dormont, where they got off and walked toward West Liberty Ave.
