SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — Update: Kiah Harmon was cited Wednesday for leaving the scene of a crash involving injury and careless driving, troopers said.
A 17-year-old Chuluota girl has been accused of crashing her car into a group of Lawton Chiles Middle School students waiting for a school bus and leaving the scene, troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The crash happened at 9 a.m. Monday at Osprey Lakes Circle and Grey Owl Run in Oviedo.
Troopers said Kiah Harmon was driving her BMW when she drove off the road, struck a mailbox and hit two 12-year-olds and one 14-year-old.
The children have minor injuries, investigators said.
"This is where they get picked up for school and now they are traumatized," said Izzie Maguire, a sister of one of the victims. "They don't want to get on the bus anymore."
Harmon continued to drive, dropped her sibling off at school and then returned to the crash scene, but not before striking a gate to the neighborhood, investigators said.
"When you left three middle school girls you just mowed down in the road, it's disgusting," said Sophie Maguire, another sister of one of the victims.
A man told Channel 9 that he chased the car, wrote down the license plate and waited for troopers.
The crash remains under investigation.
Charges are pending against Harmon, troopers said.
