HIGH POINT, N.C. – A mother and her 4-year-old child were sent to the hospital after crashing into parked cars and building in High Point, according to police.

Police said it happened Wednesday morning on Ward Avenue in High Point.

The driver lost control of the car, clipped the guard wire and slammed against the building and several parked cars, according to police.

The woman told police that her steering wheel was having trouble, but police cited her for careless and reckless driving.

Three people were in the car, including the driver’s 4-year-old child, according to police.

The driver and her child were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and are expected to be fine, according to police. The child apparently had a small cut to the face.

Four parked cars were damaged. Nobody was inside any at the time. Police said excessive speed was a factor.

“I had just gotten here,” said Susan Edwards, whose parked car was hit in the crash. “I’m surprised I was even in the building at the time. I could’ve still been in the car. (I feel) better than I (did) when it first happened, I was really shook up when it first happened.”
