5-year-old back home after being hit by a car in south Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. — Jacob Gilbert is back home and walking after being hit by car while playing on the playground of a south Tulsa apartment complex.

FOX23 was at the Savannah Landing Apartment complex as investigators looked into what happened June 22.

Three weeks later, a lot of progress has been made.

“In three weeks he’s already walking,” his mom Jessican McCan shared as she showed off the video as proof.

McCan says Jacob broke his collar bone, rib and pelvis among a fracture and numerous bruises and scratches.

As he showed off his puzzles and posters though, all he had to say was, “I feel a lot better!”

Jacob still has physical therapy but his mom says he will start school in August.

Tulsa Police says the driver who hit Jacob had a medical episode. His family has started a GoFundMe page.
