http://www.timesdispatch.com/rtd/new...234823/215065/Three people were taken to hospitals during the weekend after an 11-year-old Augusta County boy lost control of his speeding family car.
Just after midnight Saturday, the car driven by the boy skidded across an oncoming lane of traffic on Thoroughfare Road north of Waynesboro and crashed into a concrete culvert, according to Virginia State Police. The northbound car was traveling about 5 miles faster than the speed limit, police said. The boy was wearing a seat belt.
Beside the boy in the front seat was his father, 31-year-old Michael Powell, who was listed in fair condition yesterday at the University of Virginia Medical Center. Also in the front seat was Kelly Scott, 30, who was airlifted to U.Va. with spinal fractures. She, too, was listed in fair condition. Another boy, 7, was treated at Augusta Medical Center; another man suffered minor injuries.
Now what the hell was his 11 yr. son doing driving the family car. I want to know why. I'm glad he was wearing a seat belt but tell me more. He has really injured Kelly Scott with spinal fractures.
