main-st

Dayton, OHIO (WDTN) – A two-year old boy was hit by a car in the same location where an 11-year-old was hit earlier this month.

According to Montgomery County Regional Dispatch, a 2 year old was struck by a car in the 2000 block of North Main Street around 3:30 PM Sunday.

2 NEWS has spoke with the child’s mother, Natia Taylor who tells us her son, Donovan Earnest suffered a concussion and is being evaluated at Dayton Children’s Hospital.

According to Taylor, her son got away from the babysitter and ran into the street.

“When you call his name, he thinks you’re being playful. He tries to run off, that’s what he did. He ran the other way and when you go to chase him, he’s running faster. He’s laughing. He didn’t think anything of it,” said Taylor.

On October 12th, Makyla White, 11, was hit in the same area by a vehicle. She died two days later from injuries sustained from the accident.

“The only thing I would like them to do is put up street lights, or something,” Taylor said. “If they need somebody to raise money for that I will be out there to do that as well. But they really do need it, desperately because these are our babies.”

Authorities are aware that the stretch of North Main Street is a problem area but as to how it will be addressed, is unclear.
