An official report has not been released, but according to our sources, a 4-year-old little girl was breathing but unresponsive when rescue personnel arrive on the scene.

One witness told RNRF that the little girl was possibly autistic and that she ran from a neighboring residence into oncoming traffic, however that information cannot be confirmed at this time.

Another witness said she ran outside after hearing the crash and placed a blanket on the little girl, until fire rescue could arrive on scene.

The toddler was transported by ground to Bayonet Point Hospital, after suffering head trauma and several broken bones.

  • All of you that are saying that the parents need to be evaluated are wrong in my opinion.. Harmony’s mother is very loving toward her two kids, I would see her everyday with both of them and she would make sure they were safe and on the side of the road away from traffic. This was a very tragic accident that has nothing to do with the mother “not being able to take care of two kids”, everyone makes mistakes and this was one that she made. Her mother opened a window and turned to talk to her son and within seconds Harmony pushed the screen out and was running in the rain because she loves playing in the rain, and like any other Autistic girl Harmony not knowing ran into the road faster than her mom could get her and was unseen due to it being dark outside an raining and got hit. I hope that Harmony recovers soon and can go home to her house with her family.

  • My prayers go out to this baby, her family, the poor woman who struck her, and the first responders. If anyone believes that the family of this little girl should be investigated they should then make the confidential call to the abuse hotline. If anyone ever feels a child is in danger they should never hesitate to make that very important call, it’s always better to error on the side of caution…especially, when it involves a child, disabled person, or the elderly.

    • TSmith…….I agree, they need to be investigated, especially if some of these comments are true!!!

  • I was first on the scene with the little girl holding that little girl and if you only saw the parents…something was off about the parents. They didn’t go near the baby. they seemed on a substance. It was awful. Please have DCF needs to be called . It was so terrible, horrific. The parents came out of the house 5-10 minutes after when we were still in the road with her. They didn’t even come near with her and kept wanting to go back to their house. They were off… Something was so wrong with them. I pray DCF gets more involved. Both her and her little brother are autistic. She shouldn’t have been with them from what we saw.

    • Aimee…….That is very good point, so I agree with you!

      Wednesday, 13 May 2015, 11:27 pm
    • Also Aimee I was behind Harmonie at the time… My son was screaming bloody murder from watching out the window, passed all DCF piss test begged them for help with safety precautions to prevent which 2 years later is all up to code was I in shock absolutely why I had to go inside as well my son was non verbal at the time…. Just so you know I passed every DCF test code an had ppl working in the home at the time everyone else seen me there by the FHP.. DONT ASSUME I JUST LEFT MY DAUGHTER I HAD A MAN CHASING ME CAUSE MY SON WAS SCARED CALLING 911 … I had anxiety to see her like that…. Am I a bad mom no I got state in my house 24/7 and live for my kids… As you should know Harmonie is 7 now an fully cared for… Like I said passed every piss test with DCF an I’m sorry I wasn’t quick enough for your judgement thanks for helping my daughter on scene.. But I’m not a bad mother nor was I.. I chased her in a 3 min range… She broke a screen out which all windows gates doors etc are security proof for harmonies needs… Don’t bash others or assume state of shock to me being a bad mom js.. Cause every breathe I take is for my son an daughter an every DCF worker that comes into my home know I do for my children… Period… One most horrific thing to see I was numb couldn’t move… Couldn’t breathe… My son screaming ya I’m not going to be there all the way… And ya I was trying to go inside cause my son was in there as well…

      Put autistic kids with strangers and being scared an dealing with trad , a sever autistic girl still fearless, non verbal drawn too rain I shared pictures a month later video recorded her showing how she tried to pry The same window open… Spent months showing all the stories added up to my witness statement so don’t do good then say I need my kids taken away cause I tried stopping her I sat behind were everyone was standing with an FHP officer whom seen me there maybe I was too short for your eyes.. And yes when two woman came to me said there was a nurse helping as I spoke to the FHP officer I asked if I could go inside to get Medicaid cards for my daughters needs… And a towel I gave the man while he said get what you need your sons OK… I grabbed everything an then left… To follow her to the hospital

      2 years later there’s your answer to I am off etc ya I was off watch your child you couldn’t stop so fast in 3 mins she’s flying in the air the car took off… An ppl screaming I couldn’t hear I couldn’t move..

      Do I do drugs nope

      Do I take care of my kids Yup…

      Was all there nope was in shock
      That don’t mean I don’t deserve my children!!!

  • Nicole please do not place blame on the parents. I am sure they are beating themselves up enough. Autistic children tend to wander and can be gone in the blink of an eye. I have a autistic son and he has wandered many times. Always took off when I was using the restroom. Luckily I always lived in quiet neighborhoods and he was found quickly. That doesn’t make me a bad parent nor does it make them a bad parent. Just pray for the little girl and her parents and pray that one day Hernando county will realize that Autism is an epidemic and will affect more children this year than aids, cancer and diabetes combined. There should be signs posted that there is an autistic child in the area. They put these signs up for blind driveways.They should protect our children. God knows they receive the funding to do so.

    • If a child has autism parents need to take extra precautions, such as putting safety
      locks on all doors and windows so that they can’t get outside!
      Parents who do not take extra precautions are irresponsible, in my opinion!
      That being said, I don’t mean to place blame on them. I just think they should take
