A six-year-old boy riding his scooter was struck and critically injured Sunday afternoon when two cars collided at a Pompano Beach intersection.
Little Robert Glover, Jr., was injured when Marcus Permenter ran a stop sign in the 800 black of NW 5th Avenue in his Oldsmobile Cutlass, hitting Chiledric Jacques' Toyota Camry, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office report.
The Camry ended up in a front yard after spinning three times. Permenter's vehicle hit a nearby fence, a parked minivan, a tree, a pickup truck, and Glover, who was riding his scooter nearby.
"When I ran down there to see what happened I saw the little boy laying on the ground," neighbor Myron Perkins told CBS Miami. "He was just laying on one side, when I went down there the first time he wasn’t breathing, then he started breathing once everyone started talking to him."
According to BSO, Glover was transported to Broward General Medical Center in Ft. Lauderdale where he remains in critical condition.
Permenter, Jacques, and the three passengers in the Camry were treated and released from North Broward Medical Center.
Neighbor Christopher Bryant told WSNV that Permenter just got a new motor in his car and was probably going 100 miles per hour down the residential street. Permenter is known by the nickname "Crab," which is embroidered on the two front seats in his crashed Cutlass.
BSO's Traffic Homicide Unit is investigating the accident.
