Hit-and-run driver slams into young couple and baby

Holiday, FL -- A four-month-old baby boy went flying out of his stroller on Saturday afternoon when a car hit the father and pushed the baby up and out into some bushes.

Florida Highway Patrol and Pasco County deputies are searching for a white man with dark hair 18-to 22-years-old who drives a light blue Ford Crown Victoria car that hit 17-year-old father Dakota Harwood while he was walking with his wife, 17-year-old Jordan Harwood and their baby boy Jayson Harwood in his stroller.

It happened in Holiday off Chatlin Road and Trask Drive around 3:00 Saturday afternoon.

Neighbor Sarah Williams said she heard the car breaks screech then ran outside behind her husband to see what happened.

"The baby was bleeding from the head and the face and has scratches all over his legs," said Williams.

FHP said the baby was flown to St. Joseph's Hospital and the mother was treated at Medical Center of Trinity.

The father was treated on the scene.
