Toddler accidentally run over by mother
PLANT CITY - A 'horrible accident' in Plant City as a mom runs over her two-year-old son.
The two–year–old boy was hit and killed by his mother, as she and the child's grandmother were test driving the family SUV around the yard of their Plant City home, after doing repairs to the vehicle just after 5pm Tuesday evening
A sheriff's spokesperson. Crystal Clark, told WFLA-TV the boy's mother and grandmother told deputies they were test driving the family's Chevrolet Blazer that had recently experienced transmission issues. While test driving the SUV on their private road the car eventually stalled. The child's mother placed the car in reverse, then forward, before reversing again. Shortly after, the two realized the two-year-old was on the ground in front of the vehicle.
The toddler was flown to Tampa General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. An investigation into the crash is ongoing. There is no word on if the mother will face charges in the accident.
