NEW BRUNSWICK - A New Brunswick fire director who struck three children who were crossing the street after school had 18 other accidents on his record, according to Motor Vehicle Commission record information obtained by News 12 New Jersey.

Robert Rawls received summonses for careless driving and failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk after hitting the two 14-year-old girls and a 6-year-old boy with his city-owned SUV last week, authorities said. The incident sent the three kids to the hospital.

Records obtained from the MVC show Rawls had his license suspended 18 times during his lifetime. He has gone to court nine times for violations.

The tickets issued to Rawls for last week's incident are motor vehicle violations and Rawls is not charged with a crime.
The Middlesex County prosecutor's office is investigating the accident.
