Utah family mourns 4-year-old boy killed by alleged drunken driver

The family of a 4-year-old boy killed Saturday by a man suspected of drunk driving returned to the spot where he died to mourn Sunday evening.

“He’ll be missed. … We love him,” the boy’s father, Brett Curtis, told FOX 13. He encouraged other parents “to hug your kids extra tight for us. No parent wants this, but we know that we’ll see him again and we can’t wait."

Holden Curtis and his mother were struck by a car that police say was driven by Carl Wayne Johnson, 56, near 900 West and California Avenue shortly before 11 a.
