WILDWOOD, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a 2-year-old boy is dead after being stuck by an all-terrain vehicle.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, 28-year-old Terry Killings Jr. of Wildwood was driving the ATV Sunday evening when he swerved to avoid a child that had run into the roadway.
In doing so, the ATV collided with 56-year-old Johnny Williams and 2-year-old Jakhyrian Ghram, who were standing alongside the central Florida road.
Sgt. Steve Gaskins says Killings was ejected from the ATV. Killings and Williams both were hospitalized with serious injuries. Gaskins says the 2-year-old died at a hospital from injuries he suffered in the crash.
Authorities were looking Monday for the ATV. Gaskins says the vehicle was removed from the Sumter County crash scene before troopers could inspect it.
