Boy, 7, hit, critically injured by vehicle in Hillsborough


FIRST TIME IT’S HAPPENED. GOOD MORNING TO YOU. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE MORE ON THOSE STORIES IN A MOMENT BUT FIRST BREAKING NEWS OUT OF HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY. A 7-YEAR OLD BOY IS IN THE HOSPITAL AFTER HE WAS STRUCK WHILE WAITING FOR THE SCHOOL BUS. NEIGHBORS TELL US THAT THE BOY DARTED ACROSS THE STREET AND INTO THE PATH OF AN SUV. RYAN HUGHES LIVE ON THE SCENE FOR US RIGHT NOW ON NORTH FORBES ROAD. WHAT’S LATEST ON THIS? GOOD MORNING TO YOU BOTH. AS YOU MENTIONED WE ARE LIVE THIS MORNING ALONG NORTH FORBES ROAD JUST SOUTH OF I-4. AND THAT LITTLE 7-YEAR OLD BOY WAS HIT RIGHT THERE AS HE WAS WAITING FOR THE SCHOOL BUS WITH HIS SISTER AND OTHER FRIENDS. LET’S GO TO VIDEO RIGHT NOW. THIS IS VIDEO TAKEN FROM THE SCENE A FEW HOURS AFTER THE BOY WAS HIT BY A JEEP LIBERTY. DEPUTIES TELL US HE WAS RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL IN A MEDICAL HELICOPTER. THE BOY WHO NEIGHBORS IDENTIFY AS ELIZA WAS WAITING AT THE SCHOOL BUS STOP WITH OTHERS. ONE WOMAN TELLS ME HE WAS MOTIONLESS. A MAN WHO LIVES ACROSS THE STREET RAN TO HIS SIDE TO TRY TO HELP HIM. HE HAD THE HORRIBLE TASK OF TELLING THE BOY’S PARENTS. LISTEN HERE. HOW TO EVEN TELL HER? I MEAN, IT’S GOT TO BE HARD FOR ANY PARENT TO REALIZE THAT. TO HAVE THAT PUT ON THEM TO KNOW THAT HEY THEIR KID JUST GOT HIT. I WAS SCARED TO EVEN SAY ANYTHING TO BE HONEST. . THAT NEIGHBOR TELLS ME THE DRIVER OF THAT JEEP LIBERTY HE OR SHE NEVER GOT OUT OF THE VEHICLE AFTER THE INCIDENT. WE’RE STILL WAITING FOR THE IDENTITY OF THAT PERSON AND WE’RE ALSO STILL WAITING FOR AN UPDATE ON THE 7-YEAR OLD’S CONDITION. BACK TO YOU GUYS. . ALL RIGHT. ABSOLUTELY HEARTBREAKING. RYAN HUGHES LIVE
