5-year-old Hit By Pickup Truck In Sharpes



ShARPES, Florida — A 5-year-old boy remains in critical condition after being hit by a pickup truck in Brevard County, Florida.




Around 7:20 p.m. on Monday, a special needs child from Cocoa had gotten away from his parents in a nearby parking lot. As the parents were searching for the boy, he wandered into the northbound lanes of U.S. 1 near Indian River Drive and into the path of a 2013 Dodge pickup truck driven by 64-year-old Timm Eri.




According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Eri swerved to the left – but the right front of the pickup struck the child.




The boy was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital in Orlando, Florida.
