Fatherís Snow Plow Kills 6-Year-Old Son

There are times when a family experiences a collision that shakes the whole community. In Maine, a father accidentally ran over his own son and killed him. Now, the father and the family are heart-broken.

Vehicle collisions can happen anywhere, anytime and to anyone. A young boy was unwillingly killed by his father while playing outside. †His father was operating a snowplow in Maine at the time and failed to see his son prior to striking him with the large vehicle. Family members and neighbors are saddened by the situation that happened at an unwarned time.†

Nathan Capponi, a six-year-old was rushed to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine after he was struck by the plow his father drove. He was declared dead on Wednesday by medical authorities. †

"The boy was on a scooter playing in his driveway as his father was backing up the truck," Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland told reporters in a release.

Kevin Capponi, the father of the deceased child was extremely saddened by the situation. The 36-year-old was about to conclude plowing the snow out of his driveway when out of nowhere, the vehicle collided with the child. After striking Nathan, the child was immediately rushed to the hospital by ambulance from his Quaker Ridge Road home around 6:45 a.m. on Wednesday.

Community members have expressed sorrow and disbelief regarding the situation.

At the Circle K convenience store and gas station on Route 202 in Greene, Melissa Carmichael and Ben McGray told reporters that the news regarding the accident spread quickly and that the feelings the father must be experiencing are unfathomable.

"I can't imagine what he's going through," Carmichael told reporters.

"It must be horrible," said McGray, whose mother once took care of Kevin Capponi.

Through Facebook Capponi expressed his sorrow regarding the death of his family member. "Please forgive me and my family. I love him with all my heart. It is now broken."

Nicole Beachesne, a neighbor, said, "I'm not sure how I feel" about the accident. "I guess I am in shock, but I feel really bad for the parents."

In general, most community members are speechless regarding the incident. Amongst them is Kim Spencer the assistant principal at Greene Central School who declined to comment on the situation and said that the school would issue a statement responding to the boy's death at a future date.

Some left words of comfort through the online social media site for Capponi.

"There is no forgiveness needed Kevin," wrote Christopher Miller. "Your family is caring and wonderful to be with. We feel joy whenever your family enters the room. You both look into the best for each other and the kids. Forgiveness is not what you should ask for at this time."

There are many steps people can take to do after car accidents, amongst them is consulting a professional therapist or a lawyer.
