A Tarentum man who was accidentally run over by a slow-moving SUV on Thursday was improving Friday.

John Flatt, 34, of East 10th Avenue, was listed in fair condition in UPMC Presbyterian hospital, Pittsburgh. He was flown there in serious condition on Thursday.

His son, Calib Flatt, 5, was released from Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh on Friday.

Police said Flatt was in front of the SUV when he bent down to pick up his son's shoe.

The SUV's driver, Hope Vickers, Flatt's mother-in-law, was distracted by a younger grandchild in a child safety seat and the SUV moved slowly forward in a parking lot off of Mill Street, police said.

Flatt was able to push Calib out of the way, but Flatt was struck by the slow-moving vehicle.
