MESOPOTAMIA, Ohio (WKBN) — A child was flown to a Cleveland-area hospital after being hit by a car in northern Trumbull County on Wednesday.
Emergency responders got the call around 5:10 p.m. Wednesday for the injured child in the 8300 block of state Route 534 in Mesopotamia.
According to a report from the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office, a neighbor was dropping off food at the house when she hit the 1-year-old child while backing up to leave. The neighbor was upset and unaware that she hit the child, saying she didn’t realize anything was wrong until she saw emergency vehicles at the home, the report stated.
Both the Mesopotamia and Farmington Township fire departments responded to the scene.
The report notes that the child had blood around his mouth and road rash on his legs and arms when deputies arrived.
Farmington Township fire Chief Jon Bland says his crews handled the medical transport of the child, who’s in stable, but serious, condition. The child was then taken by UH Air Med to Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland for further care.
No charges have been filed.
