Sheriff's deputies responded to an area of the highway near Bartlett Avenue at about 3:12 p.m., officials said. The bounce house had been blown away from a home near the 18200 block of Delicious Avenue by strong winds.

The child actually fell out of the bounce house once it rolled onto the highway, authorities said. While on the highway, it struck a vehicle traveling southbound.

Once authorities arrived, the child was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The driver of the vehicle did not suffer any injuries but was "shook up from the ordeal," sheriff's deputies said in a news release.

No further information was released by law enforcement.
