A three-year old little boy was struck by a vehicle in Santa Cruz, California. The driver was allegedly driving around 20 mph before striking the child and tossing him 10-15 feet in the air.
Witnesses say the driver stopped to check on the child who suffered head injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery. The accident happened around 4:30 p.m. in the afternoon and investigators are trying to figure out why the child was in the road to begin with. As a parent, be mindful of where your children are at all times.
Whether you live near a busy road or not, avoid letting your child play near dangerous areas, including roads, sewers and parking lots. Whether the family of the child wil have legal recourse against the driver will depend on a number of factors, including California state law.
