A 6-year-old boy died after he crashed into a travel bed in Florida and died of head injuries, authorities said.
The boy’s mother, Tiffany, was in the vehicle when the crash happened around 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Florida Highway Patrol said in a statement.
Tiffany told police she did not realize the vehicle was on the side of the road when she pulled over to investigate, authorities added.
The crash caused the boy to become unresponsive and his body was transported to a local hospital, the statement said.
He was pronounced dead a short time later.
Authorities said the boy’s father had stopped at a gas station on his way home from work and did not know the boy was in distress when he stopped the vehicle.
He said he did not see anything wrong when he drove off.
