SARASOTA -- A 1-year-old boy was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in critical condition after he was apparently run over by a car in Sarasota, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
The accident happened about 4:41 p.m. Sunday in the 2200 block of 25th Street, according to a report..
The exact circumstances of the accident were not clear, as troopers received conflicting information, including from two 8-year-old witnesses who later admitted they didn't remember what happened.
The driver of a Hyundai Sonata said he was about to back up from a driveway when he heard a child crying, exited the vehicle and saw the toddler in the middle of the street. The driver told FHP he picked up the child and took him to his mother across the street.
