I hope to hear the protection had some malfunction.
I hope to hear the bus had some malfunction.
I hope to hear that the driver had a medical problem.
But we will never hear the voice of that child again.
Rest in peace.

There's some interesting discussion about this on Trainorders. The crossing the bus was hit at may be a factor. It won't bring that kid back though.
