St. Petersburg boy killed in Pasco I-75 crash

A 5-year-old boy from St. Petersburg was killed in a single-car crash Friday evening on Interstate 75 in Pasco County.

Cadence Walters and his two siblings, Damitri Scarberry, 7 and Falynn Carter, 9, were riding in an SUV driven by their mother Kimberly G. Scarberry, 25, also of St. Petersburg, when the vehicle's right tire blew about 6:45 p.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Scarberry lost control of the SUV, which spun and flipped several times, FHP said. Cadence was pronounced dead at St. Joseph's Hospital, a report states.

On Saturday, Damitri remained in critical condition in the intensive care unit at St. Joseph's, officials there said. The mother and oldest child, who were brought to the hospital with serious injuries, were released, hospital officials said.

The accident, which happened near mile marker 284, remains under investigation. The report states Cadence was not wearing a seat belt or other safety restraint. It was unclear if the other children were properly restrained.
