The mother of two-year-old Damon Michell, who was left fighting for her life after an alleged escape attempt, said she does not feel "hate". towards the student's driver.
In a statement issued on behalf of the family on Tuesday, mother Mary Michell said; "What happened on Sunday night was a terrible accident, exactly that: an accident.
"We can not say too much about the driver because of the proximity of the court, but there is no hatred towards him.
"Hate, get angry and blame someone will not help Damon in any way, our main focus throughout this time has been to make sure Damon gets the care he needs and regains good health."

Damon Michell is in stable condition on Tuesday and has woken up from an induced coma
The statement confirmed that Damon has now woken up from an induced coma and is in a stable condition at the hospital.
"Currently he is still not fully awake because of morphine, but he is waking up here and there and then going back to sleep but improving every hour.
"The doctors are very happy with the way he is leaving and hopefully he will leave the intensive care unit (ICU) and soon he will enter a pavilion."
Shortly after the collision, Victoria police arrested a 21-year-old man in an address in Laverton.
