A woman and her three young children were flown to hospitals Monday morning after a single-vehicle crash in White Plains.

At 9 a.m. June 10, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office went to the 9500 block of Billingsley Road after someone reported a car accident.

A woman was driving east on Billingsley Road when, for unknown reasons, she lost control of her car and struck a tree, according to information from the sheriff’s office.

The driver and her three small children, including a 2-month-old infant girl, a 4-year-old boy and a 6-year-old boy were flown to area hospitals.

The driver was flown to Washington Hospital Center, and the children were flown to Children’s National Medical Center, both in Washington, D.C.

Chrystal Dorsey, a cousin of the boys’ father, said Tuesday afternoon that the 6-year-old and infant remain in critical condition but are making progress. The 4-year-old is in critical condition and on life support, she said. The driver’s injuries are not life-threatening.

The children attend New Life Wesleyan Church in La Plata and the family has strong ties to the community, Dorsey said.

The scene of Monday’s accident was that of at least two previous traffic fatalities.

Noel Patrick Reynolds, 16, of White Plains was killed Oct. 27, 2007, and Thomas Edward Kurtz, 18, of Waldorf was killed at the same location in 1992. Crosses hang on the tree the vehicles hit, in remembrance of the young men.
