MCSHERRYSTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Hanover woman is facing multiple charges after police said she allowed a 10-year-old child to drive a car, and a pedestrian was struck.

Police were called to the scene of a pedestrian accident at around 1:40 p.m. on October 21 along the first block of Main Street.

Following an investigation, officials determined that Tiffany Sentz, 30, had permitted a 10-year-old child to drive the vehicle.

Police said that Sentz was the passenger, and two small children—ages 1 and 3—were also in the vehicle.

The 10-year-old lost control of the vehicle when turning from Main Street onto Water Street. The vehicle then struck Michael Musselman, 62, of McSherrystown while he was sitting in his driveway.

Musselman was taken to Hanover Hospital for his injuries and released the next day.

None of the children were injured during this incident.

Sentz is facing multiple charges including recklessly endangering another person and endangering the welfare of a child.
