Smyrna Police Officer Michael Smith said Lisa Stark, 25, of Smyrna, was trying to cross Concord Road at Hollis Street with her 5-year-old and 7-month-old children to get to a bus stop around 7:45 a.m. when they were hit by a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by Lawren Butcher, 54, of Smyrna.
Stark lost control of the 5-year-old, who ran out across the four-lane road, police said.
Stark was taken to Kennestone Hospital with a broken ankle and was released Monday. The children were taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston with minor injuries and should be released today.
Butcher, who was not injured, has not been charged because initial investigations show that it was a “low-speed collision,” Smith said.
Smith said Stark could be charged because she and her children were not in a crosswalk.
“They were running across the road during rush hour,” he said.
