Seven-Year-Old Son of Florida Deputy Run Over and Killed in Driveway

Ethan V. Estrada, the seven-year-old son of a Charlotte County, Florida deputy, was killed Tuesday after he was run over by a car in a driveway. The Florida Highway Patrol reported that Estrada was in the driveway of a Port Charlotte home when Terrence Hunter of Ontario, Canada slowly backed out of a garage in his 2009 Hyundai Sonata.

As Hunter backed his vehicle out the garage and down the curving driveway, the left-front tire struck and rolled over Estrada. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Estrada was then transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell offered his condolences Wednesday to Deputy Kevin Estrada and his family members.
