Community gathers to honor boy struck by car in 2013


Dozens of community members gathered in Albany's South End Saturday, honoring the memory of Qazir Sutherland.

The 7-year-old boy was killed in 2013, struck by a car as he crossed the street.

People ran, walked, or bicycled from the Ezra Prentice Homes to the Helderburg-Hudson Rail Trail Waterfall, and back, to honor Sutherland's life.

The goal of the event was to promote safe ways to get around, and be healthy, in the city.

Earlier this year, the Albany Common Council lowered the speed limit in the area from 30 mph to 25 mph.
