PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) — A 5-year-old trick-or-treater in Bay County was hurt after he was run over while trick-or-treating Tuesday night.

Florida Highway Patrol officials say it happened on Highway 77 near White Oak Boulevard north of Panama City.

Authorities say the boy was riding with other trick-or-treaters in a trailer that had been converted into a hay ride being pulled by a truck when he fell off and was run over by the trailer.

The northbound lanes of Highway 77 were shut down so the boy could be life-flighted to a local hospital.
