A father in the UK who searched for the driver who hit his toddler son on Friday was horrified to find out that it wasn't a stranger he was searching for, but himself. "That guilt will be with me forever," Jamie Ellison told The Mirror. Ellison accidentally hit the boy with his car while driving his two daughters. He says he didn't feel the bump as he left the driveway, and didn't know his son was injured. He was found a short time later by a passerby and was rushed to a nearby hospital with cuts and bruises.

Ellison at first believed a hit-and-run driver had left the 15-month-old for dead. He sent out a passionate plea for witnesses to come forward on his Facebook page. "I beg anyone who was on Hester's Way Road between 8:30 and 8:40....doing school runs or catching a bus etc to please call the police and help find who did this to my little man x thank you x [sic]."

Gloucestershire Police also appealed for witnesses. They later announced that they believed the father was at fault for the boys injuries. It seems to have been a tragic accident, and no further action will be taken against the family.

"So imagine how I feel right now to be told that I accidentally ran over my own son......think about that [sic]," Ellison wrote on his Facebook. The boy is still in the hospital for observation, but is doing well, according to The Mirror.
