At around 8:45 a.m. last Friday, pedestrians in Gloucester, England came across an injured 15-month-old on the side of the road.
They called an ambulance, and the kid was quickly rushed to the hospital. Luckily, his injuries were not life-threatening—they were just "cuts and bruises." Law enforcement notified the boy's father, Jamie Ellison, who worked with them to find the culprit. Ellison posted the following on Facebook shortly after the accident to enlist the help of his neighbors:
I beg anyone who was on Hester's Way Road between 8:30 and 8:40....doing school runs or catching a bus etc to please call the police and help find who did this to my little man x thank you x.
After the police did a little more digging, however, they realized that it was Ellison who hit the boy while on his way out. Ellison realized it too, in what was probably the worst "Oh shit!" moment of his lifetime. He broke the news on Facebook, with the following message about his remorse:
Yes it was me ....I just didnt see him or feel a bump my 2 daughters in the car also didnt see or hear him.....so imagine how I feel right now to be told that I accidentally ran over my own son......think about that
This serves as a reminder to not accidentally hit your son with your car.
