A 100-year-old man, Preston Carter, parked his car at the curb near the children. He then claimed that he lost control of his blue Cadillac, not noticing the children behind him on the street, and hit them when he put his car in reverse driving up the curb.

 

Nine children and two adults were injured, four of them seriously hurt. Nearby citizens assisted those under the car by pulling them out. The four seriously injured were sent to a nearby hospital, no cases were life threatening.

 

Carter had a valid drivers license, and is due to turn 101 years old on September 10. Charges against Carter are unknown at the time; however, officials state he is being cooperative.
