I think that it's disgusting that the three teens in question, all members of the Alexandria Aces baseball team that plays at the ball field behind Cora Kelly, were more concerned about missing their ball game than of the woman who was seriously and tragically injured at the intersection of Glebe and Commonwealth. The Aces should issue a statement from the team, in the Alexandria Times and the Alexandria Gazette-Packet, to publicly acknowledge that three of their team members were involved in the accident, and to offer an apology to the injured woman and her family, and, more importantly, to their fans, as well. And to think that they also played their ball game that was scheduled for 7:00 pm, too. MedStar landed on the ball field at Frank Mann, before the game, to take the woman to the hospital, yet no one from the Aces organization wants to acknowledge the actions and potential culpability of their three players who critically injured the woman? Shame on the Alexandria Aces for not publicly coming forward to say that they support this woman as she endures untold pain and suffering. Shame on their ball players and coaching staff, too, for being so cold and callous and not truly caring about the Alexandrians in 'their community'.

How about kicking the kids off the team? While the Aces probably should say something, it's the kids who need to be held responsible, not the team. They made the choice to drive too fast and then chose to leave the scene of the accident. The kids should be held accountable and suffer the consequences. The driver should also have his license suspended for a year. And one hopes that the parents will impose their own consequences as well. Ground them for a while? Have them do a fundraiser to help pay the woman's medical bills? Go clean toilets in a prison?

Maureen, someone told me this morning that none of the Alexandria Aces were involved in the woman's tragic and severe injuries with the accident at Glebe and Commonwealth. Someone with good authority said that no member of the Alexandria Aces baseball club injured the woman, that there were multiple vehicles involved, and the one that struck her was an individual who was not a member of the team.

Sherry, It is my understanding that the car that hit and injured the woman was not the car that caused the accident but was forced off the road by the vehicle that did. So whoever you talked to was framing it very legally.

Does anyone know how the woman is doing? I drove by the accident scene before she was attended to and have been quite concerned about her.
