A local family is seeking financial support after a late December pedestrian crash critically injured a mother and her son on Elden Street in Herndon.

“We were simply walked home after grocery shopping when a driver ran off the road and hit my five year old son, my wife and me,” Armando Verduo in a message for a GoFundMe campaign.

As of today (Tuesday), the campaign has raised nearly $17,500 of a $50,000 goal. The funds will be used to pay for medical bills and other expenses, Verduo said.

A driver hit the family on Herndon Parkway near the Elden Street intersection on Dec. 28. The boy was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital, and the woman was taken to Reston Hospital. The driver remained at the scene.

Verduo, who suffered minor injuries, said public safety personnel extricated his wife from underneath a car that was pinned on top of her.

“Neither of us can work and the medical bills and expenses are adding to the catastrophe we are now living,” he wrote in the campaign.

The Herndon Police Department has not publicly released any additional information related to the crash.

“The case is still under investigation,” HPD spokesperson Lisa Herndon said.
