The little boy, Jameson Ashley, from Michigan, was walking with his big sister when somebody backed out of their driveway hitting the little boy.
According to WNEM News. , the little boy’s mom, Mallory, said the vehicle continued to back up and ran over the top of him. “Then proceeded to still keep backing up and then ran over the top of him. Then when she got out he was underneath her tire. He was just crushed.” Mallory said.
Jameson had just started kindergarten and was out walking with his big sister in Richfield Township mobile home park when the incident happened on August 30.
According to the WNEM News, both of Jameson’s arms were broken. He also suffered a collapsed lung, five ribs along with his pelvis were fractured and doctors had to remove his spleen.
“That was the worst part, the ride in the ambulance. That was pretty tough. Seven hours of surgery. He’s a fighter though.” Jameson’s father, Joshua, revealed.
A GoFundMe appeal posted an update on September 8 reads, “On Friday, August 30, 2019, Jameson, 5, and his sister were walking over to their friends house to play.
