BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG) -- A child is hurt after he was reportedly run over while trick-or-treating Tuesday night.

Florida Highway Patrol officials say it happened on Highway 77 near White Oak Boulevard.

Authorities say the 5-year-old child 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. They have since been reopened.
