One-Year-Old Injured As Father Backs Up Truck

October 12, 2011 | Car Accidents

A one-year-old St. Joseph County boy was hit and injured by a truck as his father was backing up.

The accident occurred about 10 a.m. Tuesday morning near Lakeville. Officials said the man was unhitching a trailer in the driveway and his son watched. He then sent his son inside, but it is unclear if the boy ever went in.

When the father was backing up, he felt a bump and quickly reversed his direction. The boy was lying injured behind the truck, crying. He was taken to a local hospital with a broken pelvis and head injuries. Officials don’t believe the boy was run over, but instead was knocked down.
