NORWOOD, MASS. (WHDH) – A young child was hit by a car at a family barbecue in Norwood and taken to the hospital Tuesday evening, police said.

At around 7:45 p.m., a friend of the child’s family was pulling out of a parking space and backed over the 3-year-old boy, as she didn’t see him behind the car, according to Norwood police. The child was hit near the intersection near the intersection of Jefferson Drive and Earle Street, police said.

The boy was flown by helicopter to a Boston hospital and police said the boy had serious, non-life-threatening injuries.

Neighbors said many children were playing outside when the child was struck. The woman who ran over the child cooperated with police and was speaking with officers on scene.

“My daughters ran into the house screaming, crying that they witnessed a little boy that they were just playing with get run over by a vehicle,” neighbor Ashley Decosta said.

Massachusetts State Police and officials from the Norfolk County District Attorney’s office were on the scene Tuesday night.

Officers called the incident a “terrible accident.”
