Gold Honda Accord Collides with Bus Causing Car Accident and Resulting in Death
This is a tragic story. A 7-year-old boy has lost his life after being struck by a car near a school bus stop in Bethesda, Maryland. The boy was standing with his father and 18-month-old brother at the corner of King Charles Way and Grosvenor Lane, waiting for a Montgomery County school bus, when the incident occurred. The family was reportedly waiting for the bus around 8:20 a.m. when a gold Honda Accord ran off the road and struck them. The boy was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but sadly did not survive his injuries. This is a terrible tragedy and our hearts go out to the family during this difficult time.
A boy and his father were taken to the hospital after a car crash that witnesses described as horrific. The boy, 7-year-old Muhammad Elsyaf, suffered life-threatening injuries, and his father had minor injuries, police said. The toddler who was in the stroller with them was unharmed. The driver of the car reported he lost control of the vehicle and offered an apology. The cause of the crash is unclear and the driver was not immediately charged. A resident said he heard the crash from inside his home. These types of accidents are unfortunately all too common, but this one stands out because of the young age of the victim and the severity of his injuries. Our thoughts are with Muhammad and his family during this tragic time.
