Trinity, FL (November 1, 2019) - A 6-year-old boy suffered serious injuries after being struck by a car while trick-or-treating in Trinity on Thursday, October 31st.
According to authorities, the crash happened around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Starkey Boulevard and Town Avenue. The Florida Highway Patrol arrived at the crash scene shortly after the incident occurred. Troopers report that a 1999 Ford F150 was traveling northbound on Starkey. The Ford failed to yield to the boy, who was walking in a crosswalk, causing a collision. The boy was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital with serious injuries. Fortunately, he is expected to make a complete recovery.
There is no word on the identity of the truck driver. Charges are pending at this time.
