Two Year Old Injured When Run Over in Gibsonton
The driver did not see the baby in a stroller behind a truck, Hillsborough deputies said.
GIBSONTON – A baby is in critical condition after he was hit by a driver who did not see him behind a truck, according to Hillborough sheriff’s deputies.
Zachary Ustaszewski, 2, was flown to Tampa General Hospital with severe head trauma, deputies said.
The accident happened about 4:20 p.m. Sunday (July 3) when Brandon Concepcion, 28, of Gibsonton, and the baby’s grandfather, Randy Lear, were leaving the child’s home in Sandy’s
Mobile Home Park. Deputies said Concepcion backed a 2007 GMC Sierra from the residence and did not see Zachary in a stroller behind the truck. He backed over the stroller and into the roadway. He started to pull forward, unaware he had run over Zachary.
A neighbor witnessed the crash and ran to the truck, banging on the window to stop the truck, deputies said. The truck stopped and the neighbors moved the baby from the roadway to a grassy area in front of a neighboring home.
