Two FL Children Killed In Separate Accidents While Evacuating For Irma

Two Florida children who were evacuated from the state as Hurricane Irma approached have been killed in separate car crashes in Georgia.

Woodstock, Georgia, police say 3-month-old Riley Hunt of Port St. Lucie was struck by an SUV driven by a 17-year-old girl Saturday night and was later pronounced dead. 

DeKalb County police say an 11-year-old boy who was also traveling from Florida to Georgia was hit and killed by a car early Monday in Stone Mountain.

The identity of the boy hasn’t been released, and the cause of the crash is currently unknown.

The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office says Hunt’s mother, 28-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt, and 61-year-old Kathy Deming were also hit and are listed in critical condition.

The incident remains under investigation. 

No charges had been filed.
