Tragedy strikes Steven Curtis Chapman's family

Five-year-old daughter struck by vehicle

I hear something like this and I count my blessings....

Christian singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman's family is in mourning after his five-year-old daughter, Maria, the youngest of his six children, was accidentally struck and killed in the family's driveway by a vehicle driven by her teenage brother. The accident occurred last week on the long, rural driveway at their home west of Franklin, Tennessee.

It is a double tragedy for this family because they have lost a child ... and another child is likely grief-stricken and in deep agony over the accident. Our prayers are with this family as they deal with the heart-wrenching incident.

The funeral service for Maria is remembered by a close friend and colleague ... another news story about the tragic accident ... Steven Curtis Chapman's official website.
