A Stafford woman was arrested last night after striking two pedestrians with her vehicle in Aquia Harbour.

On May 31st at approximately 9:11 p.m. deputies from the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office, and officers from the Aquia Harbour Police Department responded to the 2100 block of Aquia Drive for a report of juvenile pedestrians struck. The driver did remain on scene. Both 14-year-old pedestrians were airlifted to a nearby hospital to be treated for serious injuries.

The 39-year-old driver had glassy, bloodshot eyes, the odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath, and admitted to consuming alcohol prior to driving. She was subsequently charged by Aquia Harbour Police for driving under the influence. She was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.

Both victims are expected to make a full recovery. The crash investigation remains active and is being investigated by the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office’s Traffic Safety Unit.

Thank you to our partners at Stafford County Fire and Rescue for their care of the injured juveniles. The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office is praying for a speedy recovery for both juveniles.
