VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - An elderly man has been charged with reckless driving after he lost control of his car and drove into a woman on a bicycle carrying three children.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the wreck occurred just after 5 p.m. on Wednesday when 84-year-old David Cherry made a wide left turn before over-correcting and losing control of his Nissan. The woman was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, and one of the children, between the ages of five and 10, suffered life-threatening injuries. The other children were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say speed was likely a factor in the accident.
