Aunt Backs Car Over 1-Year-Old Boy

CLEWISTON, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol says a 1-year-old boy was critically injured when his aunt backed her vehicle over him in Clewiston.

Troopers say the accident happened just before 4 p.m. on Christmas Day as 22-year-old Necie Love was backing out of a space at Harlem Tenants Apartments.

FHP says Marice Love ran toward the vehicle and was run over by the front tire.

The child was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers.

An investigation is underway.
