In Norfolk, Virginia (VA) a woman was pushing a stroller containing her two infant children when she was hit by a car. The youngest child was only 10 months and the other 2-year-old. The accident took place near the 1300 block of East Little Creek Road.
A Norfolk Police officer confirms that the woman was trying to cross the street with her children and walked into the path of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle stayed on the scene until the police and fire department arrived. The accident may have occurred because the vehicle was traveling too fast or the driver’s attention was not fully on the road.
