Child accidentally hit by mother’s car in driveway
Sustained severe injuries, flown to hospital
Police say a child suf- fered severe injuries and was hospitalized after his mother accidentally hit him with her car Tuesday morning.
The injuries sustained by the 8-year-old boy do not appear life-threatening, according to authorities, though he remains in serious condition.
Around 8:27 a.m. on Tuesday, the child had knelt down to tie his shoes in the driveway when his mother — unaware that her son was in front of the Kia Sorento — put the car in motion, striking the boy, according to a Charles County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson. The child was flown to Children’s Hospital in Washington, D.C., in serious condition.
Officers responded to the Waldorf home, located in the 6400 block of Pangolin Court, and are continuing to investigate the incident.
