Hit-and-run driver charged for the injuries caused to 2 boys

Sending your child to school is often done with some amount of trepidation. You know that there are dangerous drivers on the roads, and one move in the wrong direction could injure a child walking to school. When a driver hits your child, you want to focus your energy on his or her care, but it's also important to seek out compensation to cover the expenses you're accruing.

That's what the family in this case may do, their children were struck by a 36-year-old woman who then failed to stay at the scene of the accident. According to the news, the woman from New Jersey hit two schoolboys before leaving the scene. She's been caught, was arrested, and has been charged with several charges including endangering an injured victim by fleeing, leaving the scene of an accident causing serious injuries, and for tampering with evidence.

The police reported that the woman hit two boys, ages 5 and 8, as they were on their way to school. They were in a crosswalk on Main Street when the woman collided with them in her 2015 Dodge Dart. She allegedly passed the crossing guard, who was also in the crosswalk, before colliding with the children. After hitting the children on the road, the woman left the scene and then abandoned her vehicle to get away. She was caught on Main Street a short time later.

Both boys had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. The older boy was treated and released, but his younger brother was hurt more severely and remains hospitalized.
