SAVANNAH, GA (March 16, 2012): A 22-year-old Savannah woman has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault and fleeing to elude after striking a woman and three children with her car after an argument over an incident on a school bus.
Megan Walker of a Stevens Street address was arrested after the 4 p.m. confrontation at Base Drive and Executive Park on Savannah’s south side.
A discussion about the incident between two children on the bus led to a confrontation and fisticuffs between Walker and Tineca Smith, 30, of a 7th Street address in Garden City.
Smith began to walk away when Walker got into her car and hit her with it, also striking three children ranging in age from 6 to 10. All three children were transported to Memorial University Medical Center for treatment of injuries ranging from lacerations and bleeding to ankle and lower leg pain.
Three other children were transported and treated for shock and hysteria. None of the injuries was considered serious or life threatening.
Walker initially left the scene but returned when she saw approaching police cars.
The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department violent crimes division is continuing to investigate and considering other charges.
