A traffic crash in Parrish sent a family of four to hospitals in St. Petersburg, according to the Manatee County Department of Public Safety.
The accident occurred at 9:52 a.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Erie and Old Tampa roads, when a vehicle crashed into the family's van. Another vehicle was also struck in the accident, according to a news release.
Florida Highway Patrol was investigating, but the Public Safety Department said one of the drivers may have run a red light.
The entire family was taken to either Bayfront Medical Center or All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, including a 10-year-old boy who was flown by helicopter due to injuries to his abdomen and hip. His sister and his parents suffered less serious injuries.
