Toddler Struck by Car at Orlando Home Depot

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 16, 2017

Last Wednesday, an Orlando Home Depot was the site of a terrifying and terrible accident after a young child was struck by a car in the parking lot. The orange County Police Department have begun an investigation into the case, and their initial report, while lacking significant portions of information, nevertheless illustrates the primary events as they took place on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the report, Jeremiah Grady, a 2-year-old, was at the Home Depot located along West Colonial Drive (close to the intersection of West Colonial and Hiawassee Road) with his mother when the incident occurred. It seems that the young boy and his mother were walking through the parking lot of the Home Depot when, according to the mother, the child spotted something across the parking lot that was familiar to him.

Due to reasons that are not yet clear, the child managed to slip away from his mother’s grasp and run into the traffic flow around the Home Depot. At this moment, a car, being driving by an individual who was not named in the initial report, was driving through the parking lot. Unable to stop in time, or simply not seeing the child, the car struck Jeremiah. The driver of the car stopped the car and remained at the scene for the entire duration of the event.

Emergency services were called immediately and arrived within a short period of time. Taking tremendous care, they loaded the child into a waiting ambulance and transported him to Arnold Palmer Hospital. According to the report, when Jeremiah was admitted he was described as being in serious condition. At the time of this writing, his current condition is not known.

Other than these facts, the Orlando Police Department has yet to issue any more information. The name of the car’s driver that struck Jeremiah has not been released, and it does not appear that any charges have as of yet been filed against this individual. As stated above, an investigation into the accident is still ongoing as the Orange County Police Department works to discover whether or not any specific person holds the majority of culpability in the case.
