TAMPA -- Did he fall out of the SUV?
Or did he wander into traffic and get hit by the vehicle?
Tampa police detectives have obtained video from a second surveillance camera Monday night in the investigation into a 4-year-old boy's death.
Based on this new footage, detectives are questioning whether Marterrance Albury actually rolled out of the SUV as the 911 caller first believed or if the boy wandered into the street and was the victim of a hit-and-run on Florida Avenue near 109th Avenue in Tampa.
Detectives are working to obtain a higher resolution version of the video.
A witness says that at around 9:45 p.m. Sunday, Albury was seen tumbling out of the back passenger door of a Ford Expedition that was heading south on N Florida Avenue near 109th Avenue. A witness who'd been driving behind the Expedition told police he saw Marterrance land on his head before the vehicle's back tires rolled over him.
The Expedition continued south, leaving Marterrance injured in the road. The witness called 911, and Marterrance was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he later died, police said.
Family members said Albury's 17-year-old brother Sam was supposed to be watching the toddler Sunday night at their Parkview Apartments home but may have been distracted by a video game. The teen told police he has no idea how the child got out of the apartment or how he ended up in the street.
Sam had been put in charge of watching Marterrance by his mother, Johntea L. Williams, 36, while she went out with a friend. The family lives in an apartment on the 10000 block of Brittany Lane, adjacent to where the incident happened.
Police say Johntea Williams came home at 4 a.m. and became hysterical when learning of his death. She threatened suicide and was taken into protective custody under the Baker Act.
Investigators don't know who was driving the Expedition and they haven't been able to locate it.
Monday night, police released video taken from a surveillance camera at a nearby car lot. It captured video of the vehicle fleeing southbound on Florida Avenue. Based on the video, detectives are searching for a dark green, possibly black 2000-2004 Ford Expedition.
