Authorities on Tuesday filed a juvenile petition for reckless driving against an Ashburn teenager for a March 14 crash that injured three children playing on a sidewalk in Brambleton, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. A 7-year-old child remains hospitalized.
The driver, 15, possessed a learner’s permit and was taking a driving lesson from a parent shortly before 7 p.m. March 14. According to information released Wednesday by the Sheriff’s Office, as the teen traveled along Morven Woods Court, she accelerated and jumped a curb onto the sidewalk where three children, ages 7, 8 and 10, were playing.
Two children were treated at Inova Loudoun Hospital and released, according to the LCSO. A third, who was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital, has not yet been discharged.
