Speeding driver strikes Virginia mom, three kids

If you drive south from McLean along the coast for about four hours, you'll come to Virginia Beach. The city where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean is also the site where a recent pedestrian accident rattled residents.

Law enforcement officials say that an elderly, speeding driver hit a mom and her three young children when he lost control of his vehicle. The mother and kids were on a bicycle that was pulling a child carrier, police said.

The 84-year-old driver has been charged with reckless driving.

Officials said that the mom has serious injuries and that one of her children is fighting for life in a nearby hospital. The other two kids have non-life-threatening injuries.

The ages of the children and their mother were not listed.

A neighbor heard the awful sounds of the crash. “It was a really long screech of tires and then screaming," she said. "Horrible screaming."

Tire marks in her front yard show that the driver overcorrected after attempting to make a high-speed turn.

“It’s a school zone," the neighbor said. "It’s residential. (Drivers) just need to be more responsible.”

She added that she is “just praying they are alright.”

Police say that the 84-year-old was speeding; people in the neighborhood say it is not unusual to see cars going by faster than the 25 mph posted.

We hope that everyone recovers fully and quickly from their injuries.
