Two kids, 4 and 6, killed in freak car strike while playing mini-golf with their parents

TWO young kids were killed when they were hit by a car while playing mini-golf with their parents in northwest Florida.

Police said a Chevy pickup left the road, crashed into the golf course in Panama City before striking the four-year-old boy and six-year-old girl.

WJHG reports Panama City Beach officials said the children were hit by a vehicle while playing at the Coconut Creek Family Fun Park mini-golf course with their parents.

It happened about 3.30pm yesterday.

One of the children died at the scene, while the other was taken to a nearby hospital and died later.

According to Panama City Beach police officials, the driver of the Chevy Silverado that struck them has been identified as Scott Donaldson from Panama City Beach.

It is unclear what caused the driver to veer off the westbound carriageway crash into the mini-golf course.

Police say the investigation has been handed over to the traffic homicide unit.

Debbie Ward, public information officer at the city of Panama City Beach, said charges were pending, reports the Panama City News Herald.

She confirmed the family was from Louisville, Kentucky.
