Car Plows Into Crowd Of High School Students; At Least 8 Injured

HYATTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Authorities say eight students were injured when they were hit by a car in the parking lot at a Hyattsville high school.

Lt. Chris Purvis, spokesman for Hyattsville police, says the incident was reported about 6 p.m. Thursday at Northwestern High School.

Purvis said a 19-year-old was driving a compact car in the parking lot behind the school when glare from the sun impaired his vision.

The spokesman says the driver did not see students practicing JROTC drills and standing in formation in the parking lot and hit them.

The students were taken to area hospitals with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening.

The driver, who police say only had a learner’s permit, is charged with multiple counts of negligent driving and other offenses.
