Mom abandons child on the Beltway

FAIRFAX, Va.—A Newport News woman has been ordered held without bond after allegedly abandoning her child on the Capital Beltway.

Channoah Green, 22, faces two felony charges. They include reckless endangerment of a child and failure to render aid at the scene of an accident.

Police say Green struck the 4-year-old boy with her car when he tried to get back into the vehicle.

“Based on what he told us, his mother was upset with him. She put the child out. He attempted to get back into the vehicle as she was driving off and was knocked to the ground,” said Virginia State Police Sgt. J.L. Doss.

Authorities said the child was taken to the hospital and treated for cuts and bruises and then turned over to Fairfax County Child Protective Services.

Green appeared for arraignment in Fairfax County’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Friday morning. A judge told her a public defender would be appointed to represent her. She also set an Aug. 26 court date for her trial.

If convicted, she faces a possible prison sentence on each of the two counts.
