Child, 5, critically injured in Fairfax crash

By Erica Johnston

A 5-year-old child was critically injured Wednesday evening when a car the child was in veered off Route 7 and crashed in Fairfax County, police said.

The car left the road in the 6100 block of Leesburg Pike, about halfway between Baileys Crossroads and the Seven Corners area. It then went down an embankment and struck a tree about 6:30 p.m., said Officer Bud Walker, a spokesman.

The child, whose identity and gender could not be immediately learned, was taken by an ambulance to a nearby hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries, Walker said.

Unless this 5 year old was the sole passenger (ie the driver) how about a little info on the rest of accident? Possible cause? Any other injuries? Seriously.

Just another victim of happy hour ... but, really, can't a driver have a martini or four without all the embarrassment and disruption a crash often brings?
