CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM)– The driver who allegedly hit two children while they were out trick-or-treating in Cumberland County had not been properly licensed for more than 10 years, according to police.
New Cumberland Borough Police say 33-year-old Lindsey Rowe is facing felony charges of aggravated assault by vehicle, aggravated assault, and misdemeanor charges of recklessly endangering another person. She was also charged with two summary counts of driving while her license is suspended and not driving a vehicle at safe speeds.
Police were called to the scene along the 300 block of Fifth Street in the borough Thursday night for a report of a crash with two pedestrians hit.
Two children who were out doing their community’s trick-or-treat event were hit by an SUV, police say, and were sent to the hospital for treatment. Their injuries, while serious, do not appear to be life-threatening.
According to the charging documents, the last time Rowe, who was driving a black 2012 Nissan Muran SUV, had a license was in 2009. Police say she was traveling at a high rate of speed when she hit the kids who were in a crosswalk.
