    GA - Runaway car hits and injures 4 kids, 2 critically in Hall County

    "Four children were injured, two critically, Sunday afternoon when a car was knocked out of gear at a home in North Hall, authorities reported."

    "The owner of the rolling car that injured four children Sunday has been charged, and three of the children have been released from the hospital."

    "Oleksandra Y. Myrna, 32, was charged Monday with four counts of reckless conduct because the car did not have the emergency brake applied when it came out of gear, according to Georgia State Patrol."http://www.gainesvilletimes.com/section/6/article/102632/

    This puzzles me:
    "....The four children were hurt when a 1988 Acura Legend parked in a carport on Price Way came out of gear and rolled backward into the children, who were sitting under a tree, according to the state patrol...."

    Ok, so "the car did not have the emergency brake applied when it came out of gear...."

    How did the car 'come out of gear?'
    Did Myrna, who was arrested, get in the car, start it, then back up and hit the kids?
    Did she start the car, then exit, go back in the house, get distracted, and car rolled down driveway w no driver?
    Did someone else, a licensed driver, do that?
    Did a child (whose child?)
    do that?

    Sad. Hoping for a complete recovery for all the kiddos.
