An 84-year-old woman driving in Medfield this morning allegedly hit two young children after leaving a church Mass, police said.
Medfield police said the children, whose names and ages they could not confirm, were not critically injured. They were taken to Norwood Hospital.
It was at least the eighth serious car accident in Massachusetts involving an elderly driver in the last month.
The driver, whose name was also not released, allegedly hit the children while they were being led by their grandmother near a crosswalk in front of St. Edward's Church on Spring Street, police said. The grandmother was not injured, they said.
