Americus -- A small child was rushed to Sumter Regional Hospital after getting hit by a car. The accident happened at the intersection of Winn and Ashby street at around 2:00 PM Friday afternoon.

The boy fled into the street for his mother who was on the other side when the car hit him. A passenger in that car immediately grabbed the child and fled to a hospital. A mail carrier witnessed the accident.

"As the dad reached for him about a hand too short and too late, the baby got knocked him from about that mail box to about right there. It flipped him three or four times, and you could here when his head hit the ground. There was nothing the driver could do unless she was doing five miles an hour, and she just couldn't see the baby because of the car," said USPS Mail Carrier, Charles Varnum.

That toddler was taken to Sumter Regional Hospital where he is in fair condition. Family members of that child followed behind.
