County firefighters comfort the mother of a child who was hit by a vehicle in the parking lot at Westminster Academy Christian Day School in the Eagle Rock section on Los Angeles on Wednesday. The driver, who may have stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake, accidentally struck a group of students being picked up by their parents after school Wednesday, authorities said. Three adults and 15 children were injured, at least three of them seriously. The driver was a 65-year-old woman who was trying to pick up her grandchild at the school.
