Putnam Co. boy recovering after accident at home

KALIDA — A 9-year-old boy who was seriously injured Jan. 22 when he was struck by a vehicle in a private driveway is reportedly recovering at a Toledo hospital.

Putnam County Sheriff Brian Siefker said Mathew Foppe was run over at approximately 3:17 p.m. Friday at a residence at 16880 Road L in Putnam County by a minivan driven by his brother, Nick.

The Kalida Fire Department and Kalida, Putnam County EMS and Putnam County Sheriff’s Office responded to the call and the boy was transported by Life Flight to St. Vincent hospital in Toledo.

Posts on Facebook by the boy’s mother indicated that he was “sitting up in bed and eating Popsicles, but he’s got a long road ahead of him,” the sheriff said.
