ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Tragedy befell a south Orlando family Wednesday night when a 2-year-old boy was killed after his 12-year-old sister accidentally ran over him in a neighborhood west of U.S. Highway 441, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The Florida Highway Patrol said that while the family was preparing to leave their home, the girl started the vehicle for her parents and the car went into reverse and hit her 2-year-old brother, who was behind the vehicle, according to Florida Highway Patrol PIO Sgt. Kim Montes.
