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.
