In Medfield, Massachusetts, an elderly driver hit two children when the driver was pulling out of a church parking lot. The children (approximately 2 years old and 5 years old) were crossing the crosswalk with their grandmother according to police. The 2 year old suffered facial trauma but the injuries were not reported to be life threatening. The driver was reported as 83 years old.

It appears from the facts of this story that the grandmother and small children were properly using the crosswalk. Unfortunately, some drivers are distracted or do not see pedestrians using crosswalks.
