GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) — A 1-year-old was hit by a car driven by a family member in the driveway of a Garner home Sunday afternoon, police said.
The incident was reported around 3:45 p.m. in the 3900 block of Randell Road, which is in a neighborhood off W. Garner Road in north Garner, according to Garner police.
The incident happened as the toddler was standing in the driveway when the child’s 57-year-old uncle was backing up a Ford Mustang, Garner police Capt. Chris Adams said.
The uncle’s car hit the little boy, who was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, Adams said.
The toddler suffered a cut to his head but was conscious and breathing before being taken to a hospital, according to Adams.
The boy suffered injuries that Adams said are not considered life-threatening.
No charges are expected in the incident, he said.
