(WHAS11) – 5 New York children are recovering after they were hurt during accident Thursday morning when an SUV jumped the curb and hit a group of students.
Officials say the driver hit the gas pedal instead of break knocking down a parking meter and plowing straight into the children.
A group of good Samaritans stepped into help, lifting up the 4,000 pound car in order to help two children pinned underneath get out.
Some of the children were seriously hurt but everyone is alive.
So far police have not filed any charges.
