A young boy is spending his birthday in the hospital following an accident at Gator Motorplex in Willis.
Morgan Harrod turns 13 years old on Easter Sunday.
Morgan is currently in Memorial Hermann Hospital's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit recovering from severe injuries.
Morgan's family told Eyewitness News that he really likes racecars and that his favorite driver is Kasey Kahne.
The family said it wasn't a surprise when he wanted to go to a race track for his birthday celebration.
Morgan's mother, Jennifer Driver, said she felt safe doing so.
Driver told Eyewitness News that she and her son were walking up to the fence outside of the track. She said a racecar driver seemingly came out of nowhere at a fast speed.
Before she realized it, Morgan had been hit.
