6-Year-Old Boy Hit By Car In Tullahoma

A 6-year-old Tullahoma boy is listed in stable condition at Vanderbilt Medical Center after being struck by a car Wednesday night, and the driver of the car that struck him has been charged. According to a report by Tullahoma Officer Rana Pawlowski, Kayden Jaramillo of Eddie Street in Tullahoma, was struck by a Dodge Charger operated by 35-year-old William Deshon Braston of Hermitage, Tennessee, while at the Jefferson Street Park. According to the police report, the Charger struck the child and then left the area, but as the car was driving away, the boy’s mother, Crystal Miller, started to “bang on the window” of the car hoping to stop the driver. He drove away. He later returned to the park, and police were notified that the man had returned to the park. Braston, according to the police officer, stated when the accident occurred he was going to move the car due to fireworks in the area, but as he was leaving, people started to yell at him. He said that he stopped and got out of the car, thinking that there were fireworks under the vehicle. Braston stated that he saw the boy and helped him from underneath the car, and that the boy was “scratched up and crying” but otherwise seemed to be okay. Braston was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injury and driving on revoked/suspended license. He was released after posting a bond of $22,500 and is set to appear in Coffee County General Sessions Court August 9.
