July 12, 2019

GATES, N.Y. (AP) — Police believe two toddlers run over by a car as their father pulled them in a wagon will survive.

WHAM-TV reports Jamie McDonald was pulling a wagon carrying his children, ages 1 and 2, Thursday evening in suburban Rochester. A car jumped the curb and hit the wagon, dragging the children about 50 feet.

Police in the town of Gates say the 29-year-old woman driving the car said she was distracted by her two young sons jumping in the back seat. She was charged with reckless driving and having unrestrained children in her car.

Gates Police Chief James VanBrederode says the toddlers were hospitalized in critical condition at Golisano Children’s Hospital and are expected to survive.
