Hours after being released from the hospital Thursday afternoon, 7-year-old Nevaeh Green sat on her mother's lap at a relative's house, fidgeting with a plastic baggie. The girl remained too shaken up to talk about what had happened two nights earlier On Tuesday, Nevaeh was the lone surviving victim after Baltimore police say a 28-year-old woman purposefully drove her vehicle onto a sidewalk in the 1900 block of W. Franklin St. toward a woman she had been arguing with. In the process, she also hit Nevaeh and a 2-year-old boy.

An Anne Arundel County judge heard closing arguments Wednesday in the case against a Howard County police officer charged with assault in connection with a June 2013 wrong-way collision in Anne Arundel that injured a family of four. Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr., who is presiding over the trial, said he will deliver his decision on June 23.  The officer, Symchay Kon Bendu, 29, of North Laurel, faces four counts of second-degree assault, a reckless driving charge and a negligent driving charge in connection with the June 8 accident, which occurred on a one-way road that connects Route 100 eastbound to Route 10 southbound.  The accident in question, during which Bendu's cruiser was T-boned as he attempted to make a U-turn, was preceded an hour earlier by another accident in Anne Arundel involving Bendu.
