Toddler Flown To Hospital After Crash
A toddler was struck by a vehicle after he ran across a parking lot in Port St. Lucie County.
According to Port St. Lucie Police Spokesman, Master Sgt. Frank Sabol, the young boy ran across a parking lot in the 200 block of SW Voltair Terrace and was struck by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, a man, stopped, Sabol said.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the young boy was flown with a helicopter to a hospital after the crash.
The police spokesman said the boy’s injuries were not life-threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery. It is unknown at the time of this report if the parents of the child were nearby at the time of the crash.
The identity of the child is yet to be released by the authorities.
This is a vehicle crash with injuries said the sheriff’s office. The cause of the crash is being investigated.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Cases involving accidents with trucks are always subject to heightened scrutiny because of the additional regulations placed on drivers of those vehicles. Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
