A 7-year-old girl is suffering life-threatening injuries and two other children are hurt, after a 15-year-old student driver struck them on a sidewalk in Ashburn, Va.

Loudoun County authorities say the teenage driver, who has a learner's permit, was receiving a driving lesson from her dad around dinnertime last night when she mistakenly hit the gas and jumped a curb onto a sidewalk where three children were playing.

A 7-year-old girl was airlifted to Inova Fairfax hospital in critical condition. Her 8 and 10-year-old playmates were also briefly hospitalized and are now recovering at home.
