Seven People Hit in Car Accident, Baby Killed


Rockingham Co., VA – An 18-month-old baby was killed Friday morning in a terrible crash out of Rockingham County.

Police say the person responsible for this accident was a 16-year-old boy who was on his way to school Friday morning.

It happened in a subdivision just outside Harrisonburg.

Police say he lost control and ran off the road, hitting seven people who were waiting for the bus. He hit two adults and five kids in all.

The baby was killed, one adult is at UVA being treated and all the others are stable.

Right now Rockingham County investigators don't know what happened.

"The investigation is ongoing, reconstruction is here and we're going to actively follow up on talking to witnesses and victims as well," said Sheriff Bryan Hutcheson.

The 16-year-old driver was not hurt, but he has been charged with involuntary manslaughter.
