Police in Stoneham, a suburb about 15 miles north of Boston have identified the driver in a terrifying hit and run accident involving four kids. Surveillance video caught the hit and run on tape as the four children, who were only 12 and 13 years old, were seen standing in a driveway as the car sped towards them. striking them. Two of the children were taken to the hospital with minor injuries while the others were treated at the scene.

The Boston Herald reported that after striking the children the driver of the car then ran into a vehicle that was parked in the driveway before reversing and dragging a bicycle with them.

Some of the children involved in the scary incident spoke to the Boston Herald and described what happened before the car struck them. “We were all just standing here talking, and then we heard tires screeching, and the car rammed into us,” 13-year-old Vincenzo Guarino stated. “We all thought they were going to keep going after us. It beeped the horn at us and then zoomed down the street.”

Fortunately, none of the children were seriously injured but it did leave them wondering why someone would hit four children and then just leave them there, unsure if they were seriously injured or not.

Thirteen-year-old Julia Cabral is on crutches as a result of the accident. “I just think they should be ashamed of themselves,” she said. “I got hit straight on. I just remember seeing headlights and then trying to get away because I didn’t know if they were going to hit us again.”

James McKinnon lives at the intersection where the hit and run happened and it was his surveillance cameras that captured the crime. "The car hit them and, boom, the kids went flying,” he told the news site.

The police have identified the car and the vehicle's owner, but state that she has declined to speak with police. So far an arrest summons hasn't been issued.

“I think it’s really messed up that someone would hit four kids and beep their horn and take off,” 13-year-old Caden Parks-Miller who was struck by the car and left with cuts on his arms and legs said. “I don’t know why they would leave. I think they should be arrested.”
