Four-year-old Nathan Elorza died in Baytown last weekend. Pictures, stuffed animals and a petition for speed bumps now mark the spot where he was killed. The boy's family plans to meet with city leaders to ask for speed bumps and warning signs for children at play.

"Unfortunately, I know it's going to happen, but we need to do something to stop it, or make it not happen as much," said Herman Manzanares, the boy's uncle.

Police are still investigating the accident that killed Nathan. No charges have been filed in the case.
