Doran spoke to a mother of one of the children, Amber Atkinson who said she was "talking with other soccer moms when she heard a blood-curdling scream. She whipped her head around as other parents screamed, and saw a red car come hurtling across the Lysander Town Park soccer field where about 75 young players had just started practice."

The report on syracuse.com said that a few of the players were talking to a coach right by a soccer goal net when the car veered off the road, crashed through a chain-link fence and went right through the soccer goal before hitting a tree. “It was terrifying,” Atkinson told syracuse.com. “It’s a miracle none of the kids got hurt. All the pieces fell into place. A minute longer and it could have been awful.”
