PCSO Press Release
Around 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, the PCSO ECC received a 911 call regarding a juvenile pedestrian who had been struck by a car on 10th StreetWest in unincorporated Lakeland, just west of Saratoga Avenue. According to the investigation so far, it appears that 14-year-old Camron Holloway of Lakeland was walking along the sidewalk on the north side of 10thStreet and looked to the east for oncoming traffic before running south across the street. It does not appear that he looked west before crossing, and he entered into the path of a 1996 beige Toyota Camry being driven by 66-year-old David Arnold of Lakeland. Arnold attempted to avoid striking the boy by veering to the left but was unsuccessful, and the boy hit the passenger side of the car and rolled onto the hood, striking the windshield. Arnold immediately stopped. He did not show any signs of impairment. Holloway was transported to Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center, and then to All Children’s Hospital in Tampa where he is in critical but stable condition. The roadway was closed for approximately three hours.
