Driver Tries to Block News Coverage of a Child Being Struck by His Car

SPRING HILL – A 12-year-old boy was struck by a car today, after he tried cross Landover Blvd, eastbound on Northcliffe Blvd.

The child’s injuries do not appear to be life-threatening, but he was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The alleged vehicle owner and his daughter immediately accosted RNRF and demanded that we leave the scene and not video record the vehicles.

The alleged owner even stepped in front of his vehicle to prevent RNRF from taking pictures of the damage.

The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the cause of the crash.

We will bring more on this story if the child’s condition worsens.

  • I am praying for a full recovery for the child. It looks like the father was either trying to shield/protect his own daughter from being filmed or his license plate. I’m sure the police will complete a full investigation themselves.

  • hows the kid doing?

  • Any response to the eyewitnesses that say this man was not the driver? Any update on the child’s condition or the police report confirming if the man pictured is the driver? Wouldn’t a responsible journalist want to update information?
    You posted this man’s picture stating that he hit a child with his car, this could damage his reputation.

      • I didn’t realize that you were an eyewitness to the incident and had video evidence of it. Yes, please post it! I was responding to the multiple other people who said they were eyewitnesses, not a man with a police scanner and a flashy car who showed up on scene after the fact. Wouldn’t the police report list the driver’s name? That seems like something that a journalist would request in order to ensure accuracy of his reporting. Also, I was wondering about the child’s condition that you stated you would update the article to include.

        • Fedup, if you’re so “Fed-up” with Tom reporting news, than grey the hell off the site. The man is sharing news, it’s to inform us, not for you to give him a hard time. Just get the hell over yourself and go away. On the other hand, I hope all involved are ok.

  • Truth of the matter is when your in springhill your dealing with too many people from too many different states that call themselves Floridians but drive like where they came from. A true native floridian will not block side roads, blow their horn in a split second we second, and nine times out of ten we are always willing to let someone over.

You really should get your own life….where you (my guess is you are one of the women mentioned in the article) Can spread your hater ways and thoughts…cause honestly here every one knows how pathetic you are.

  • Sometimes I wish ppl would consider their reaction before casting judgement on others….. The guy just went through a very traumatic event I would assume, then he has some guy flashing a camera in his face. Wrong or right I’m just saying it’s worth consideration. Very easy to cast judgement from our couches .

    • A decent person would have been more concerned for the child than the news.

      Thursday, 5 April 2018, 8:00 pm
    • Wrong…he was trying to take a pic of the vehicle but Johnny wanted to be in the pic…I’m guessing he needs attention.

  • What a pathetic loser glad you got a good shot of them that is a horrible intersection that needs to be dealt with anyway hope the kid is OK article states he had a daughter I wonder how he would feel if the shoe was on the other foot what a jerk !

  • Hope this child makes a quick recovery. I find here in Orida nobody gives anybody a right away but themselves. When someone put their signal on to want to move over a lane nobody allows them to. Everybody is in a hurry. Poor child

  • Sending prayers to all involved

    Wednesday, 4 April 2018, 9:28 pm
  • What a jackass! Instead of being worried about the child he hit he was more concerned with the media attention. I hope RNRF got a pic of his license plate and will post it.

    Wednesday, 4 April 2018, 7:30 pm
  • looks like you got a good one Tom!

    Wednesday, 4 April 2018, 7:20 pm
  • oh no!, prayers for this child. i’m sure the driver feels bad, BUT, he hit a kid! news!

  • I was in front of the school at 2:15 and there were kids running back-and-forth in traffic away from the crossing guard

    Wednesday, 4 April 2018, 5:56 pm
    • Not surprising. The crossing guards usually do a good job but there’s a few of them who don’t know what they are doing and they don’t know the traffic light patterns causing issues with cars backing up and with kids crossing when they shouldn’t be.

    • Kim, I tried replying to your comment yesterday, but not posted. I agree, we have seen these kids in action on other streets. Ride 3 and east and won’t move for car, skateboard right in middle of road, and may move at last minute. We just stop or turn on another street. I don’t wish the kid any harm, and hope he is ok, but until the facts are in, why crucify the man, I am sure he didn’t get up thinking gee I am gonna hit a kid on a bike today. And how in the heck do you know he is from NY?, what difference does that make?

      Thursday, 5 April 2018, 11:49 am
      • Why crucify the man? Becase the cult of Lemons believes whatever he posts without question. That’s why.

        Thursday, 5 April 2018, 4:48 pm
        • Dude get with the times….it’s called media

          Sunday, 8 April 2018, 1:32 pm
        • This has been a test of the Emergency Broadcast System

          Tuesday, 10 April 2018, 5:03 pm
        • He did in fact block the photo’s of the accident. He was more worried about media coverage than the kid he hit. That is reason enough to crucify him.
