3-Year Old Run Over at Local Park – Airlifted to Trauma Center – UDPATE

SPRING HILL – A 3-year-old child was airlifted to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa this evening, after he was run over by a car at Delta Woods Park, located on Deltona Blvd.

There are unconfirmed reports that the child sustained an open femur fracture but his exact condition is unknown at this time.

The Florida Highway Patrol is en route to investigate the cause of the accident.

We will bring more on this story as it develops.

UPDATE: 8/24/2015, 10:47 PM – According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the injured child was standing outside of a parked 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee next to the driver’s side door. Another child, approximately 8 years old, was sitting in the driver’s seat while the vehicle was running. 

An adult was loading the vehicle from the passenger side, when for reasons unknown, the vehicle slipped into Neutral and began to roll backwards. 

The victim fell to the ground and the front left wheel of the vehicle ran over his right leg. 

Upon further investigation, it was determined that the shifter can be moved in and out without stepping on the brake. 

There are unconfirmed reports on social media that the child did not sustain significant injury as previously reported. 

The child’s condition remains unknown.

  • I agree with Logic..L Hall..and localemployee..but yes praying for this child too..

    Monday, 24 August 2015, 5:26 pm
  • logic- that is a misnomer if ever there was one. You have very little in the way of factual information, so just give it a rest. Same to the rest who rush to judgment.

  • Someone should run over the babysitter. Twice.

  • Instead of opinions and judgments, can the negative people just say prayers for the family. This is a wonderful child with a very loving family. Can you imagine how they have been feeling during this time? Horrible accidents happen to good, careful, and fantastic people. Be thankful it did not happen to you and say a prayer. Why would people rather focus on what went wrong, how it went wrong, and trying to place blame. Send love! Give you children hugs and thank the Lord for his many blessings. Let’s not make a sad situation even worse. And all the arguing and swearing does just that. Put yourselves in the shoes of this mother, or the babysitter, or better yet the poor child and think before you have something to say. How would you want to be treated after an ACCIDENT!

  • The babysitter was right next to the car Jackie Says so for the car to roll it must have been on and what was a toddler doing in the car to make it roll. People these are little humans you actually have to watch them, not talk on the phone or gossip with your friends you have to watch them, especially in a car with the motor running

  • My prayers are with this precious child and his family.

  • Others really need to keep their negative opinions to themself. Accidents do happen… Don’t be so quick to blame the parent. No mother or father would ever want this to happen to their child. He is expected to make a speedy recovery and there are no broken bones. He is a tough little man! Please keep him and family in your prayers as this is still a rough time.

  • A child should NOT have been able to be around a running car for this to have happened. None the less, I feel sorry for ALL that were involved. Especially the mother of this child as she was not present. From what I hear this family has had a few tragic incidents recently… Keeping your family in my prayers…

    Sunday, 23 August 2015, 10:53 pm
  • I grew up going to this park and I was glad to take my own children too . Although I always hated how close the playground was to the parking lot along with the angle of the parking spots . Too many blind spots. Poor baby. Accidents do happen .

    Sunday, 23 August 2015, 10:02 pm
  • I was present when this accident happened it was no ones fault it was a complete accident and the people with the kids were right there so some people need to stop and find out the truth prayers for the boy family and people involved

  • Jana rae its not a problem. Im really good friends with the family of the 3 yr old and im not gonna let people bad mouth his mother when it wasnt her fault! Some things just are an accident and its doesnt mean its automatically the parents fault. I have a 2 yr old and i can try and protect her as.much as i can and shes still gonna end up with bumps and bruises things just happen sometimes.

  • No books – the boy hit on the bike is ok. Stayed at hospital for observation for 2 days – major road rash, a swollen ankle, and sore. Also scared to sleep. Of all things, he wanted to be in attendance in classes on Monday. (Assuming that is what you were referring to about “the weather. “)

    Sunday, 23 August 2015, 8:18 pm
    • Yes, last week weather was so bad,that child had to go by ground transport due to weather, so glad he’s ok now.wishing both a get well.

    Sunday, 23 August 2015, 6:46 pm
  • Prayers for the little boy and his parents! Please people don’t be so quick to automatically blame the parents –From what I have seen from the careless drivers around here you could be sitting 200 yards from aNY road around here and get run over. PRAYERS and wait for information before you blame anyone.

    Sunday, 23 August 2015, 6:43 pm
  • I Hope the kid is OK!!! It looks like a Tragic accident. Prayers for a full recovery and lets not forget about the driver! I could only imagine a child darting out into the road and hitting them I’d be devastated!!!
