    The teen, who had her learner's permit, was receiving a driving lesson from her father on Morven Woods Court when she jumped a curb and struck the children, ages 7, 8 and 10, who were playing on the sidewalk.

    The 7-year-old was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital with life-threatening injuries and was later listed in stable condition. She remains hospitalized.
