Dragged by car, boy suffers broken back

April 18, 2011

An 11-year-old boy's back was broken when he was dragged behind a car in the driveway of his Brookfield home April 11.

According to the city of Brookfield police report:

Officers were called to Elmbrook Memorial Hospital just before 11:30 p.m. April 11 because the boy had been brought there for treatment.

The boy and his sister gave conflicting accounts of the incident, but the boy's mother said he had jumped onto the car as his sister backed out of the garage. In a panic, she mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brakes, and the boy was dragged under the car.
