Hillsborough boy hit, dragged by car

Posted: Updated:
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Deputies say a 14-month-old boy was taken to the hospital after a car hit him and dragged him almost ten feet.

It happened in front of a home on Cobia Drive around 6:30 PM on Friday.

Jaike Young was playing outside with other children, while being supervised by family members.  Investigators say a vehicle stopped in front of the home to drop off a passenger.

As the car was pulling away, deputies say a child threw a rock in front of the car and Jaike ran to get it.  Jaike was below the driver's line of sight, and the driver let off of the brakes.

The vehicle rolled about 8-10 feet, dragging Jaike underneath, before coming to a stop.

The child was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Hillsborough deputies say the driver will not be cited.

    With a toss of a football, Charlie Crist boarded the bus in Orlando. “On to victory,” Crist announced, as he headed to his seat. It's a campaign tour that might have seemed improbable just a few years ago. But the former governor is on the campaign trail again, trying to win over voters to win back his old job in Tallahassee.

    Verizon insists on seeing Town N' Country man's birth certificate for credit report error

    James Woolever was shocked to find a bad mark on his credit report. Especially since it was for an "outstanding balance" from a Verizon account opened in 1979. He knew that couldn't be right, because he was just 6 years old then.
