The child, who was playing in the yard with a dog, was struck by a vehicle.
- January 29, 2019
- Time: 2:10 PM
A one-year-old child died on Tuesday, January 29, after being run over by a vehicle in front of his home. Shortly after 2 p.m., deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office were called to a mobile home park located off 27th Street SE in Ruskin. A neighbor advised deputies she had just dropped the one-year-old child and his family off at their home. The child, who was playing in the yard with a dog, was struck by her vehicle as the neighbor attempted to leave the residence and pull into her home next door.
The child was transported to St Joseph's Hospital South and pronounced dead at 2:50 p.m. due to injuries sustained from the accident.
This is an active investigation. Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor in this crash. No charges have been filed at this time.
