The seven-year-old child that was struck by a vehicle on Wednesday morning at a bus stop at the intersection of Grosvenor Lane and King Charles Way in Bethesda has died as a result of his injuries, according to a report by Caitlynn Peetz.

The child was a student at Ashburton Elementary School in Bethesda. He was waiting at the bus stop Wednesday morning with his father and 18-month-old sibling when the driver of a Honda Accord left the roadway and struck all three.

The collision is currently under investigation. The driver of the Honda remained on the scene and cooperated with authorities.

The father was treated for minor injuries and the toddler was uninjured. The 7-year-old, who’s name has not been released, was initially transported with critical, life threatening injuries.

According to an MCPD release, at approximately 8:22 a.m., 2nd District Officers and Montgomery County Fire Rescue personnel responded to the location for the report of a collision involving three pedestrians and a gold 2002 Honda Accord.

The investigation by detectives has determined that an adult male, his 18-month-old toddler in a stroller and his 7-year-old son were waiting for the arrival of a Montgomery County Public Schools bus on the southwest corner of King Charles Way at Grosvenor Lane. The operator of the Honda was traveling westbound on King Charles Way and was about to exit the community onto westbound Grosvenor Lane. For reasons unknown, the operator of the Honda left the roadway and struck the pedestrians. After the collision, the Honda re-entered the roadway, travelled across both lanes and left the roadway.
