It was a parent’s worst nightmare at Lake McConaughy on Monday. According to Keith County Attorney Blake Edwards, three-year-old Kevin Ostarkov, of Denver, Colorado, was playing near the family’s campsite Monday afternoon when another member of the camp accidentally backed over him, apparently not seeing the boy behind the Subaru station wagon.
Authorities responded swiftly to the call near Sandy Beach on the north side of Lake McConaughy, and transported Ostarkov to the Ogallala Community Hospital. The boy was then flown to Children’s Hospital in Denver for treatment of broken bones including a skull fracture.
38-year-old Alexander Kayrevich, of Commerce City, Colorado, was cited for reckless driving. Edwards says alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
