HELENA- A 5-year old boy who was accidentally run over by a motorhome on Sunday has been airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton says the child is in critical condition in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Montana Highway Patrol reports that at around 2 p.m., at a home near Silver City, the child's father was driving the motorhome when he hit the boy on the passenger side.
Emergency responders air lifted the child to Benefis Hospital in Great Falls around 3:30 Sunday, and he was taken to Seattle Sunday night.
