Joshua Boyce was a sweet little boy who got along with everyone he met.

The two-year-old’s family remembered him this way yesterday as they reflected on the life cut short by a car accident on Friday night.

Relatives said Joshua was standing just outside his St Michael home, holding the hand of a family member after a familial dispute turned ugly.

The car was being reversed when it struck him, pinning the toddler to the wall of his home. He died later at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Police are investigating the matter. (CA)

Wow! this is a double tragedy. First the dispute now the death of the little boy. My prayers are with the family.

It is really sad that this toddler had to be the victim in a dispute among adults whom should have known better.

Now that cooler heads prevail, everyone must be asking themselves if the quarrel was worth the eventual costs - the death of "sweet" Joshua and the possibility of someone being charged with the little boy's death and perhaps imprisonment.
