Just after 1:30p.m. Wednesday Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office along with MCHD and Splendora Fire Department were dispatched to the 26000 block of Pecan Grove near Fosters Bend for a reported auto pedestrian accident with a child trapped under the vehicle. When Splendora Fire Department arrived on the scene the child had already been removed from under the vehicle.
MCHD requested PHI Air Medical to the scene due to the nature of the injury.
According to the Sheriff’s Office the 8-year-old girl was about to leave with her 17-year-old sister and her 18-year-old sister in a Highlander SUV. The two sisters, who thought the child had already gotten into the back seat put the SUV in gear and started to drive off. The child who had not yet gotten into the vehicle was run over with the back tire. They reported the SUV had actually left a tire track from her lower lower body across the shoulder area.
The child was talking with paramedics as they she was being prepared to be flown to Hermann Hospital in Houston.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is continuing their investigation.
