Having eight kids can be a doozy, especially if you drive over one.

It was a close call for Kate Gosselin when she picked up her kids Thursday afternoon from their school bus drop-off location in Pennsylvania.  Gosselin, 36,  waited in the driver's seat of her minivan while her eight kids departed their school bus and climbed into their family's vehicle.

But one 7-year-old boy decided to climb under his mother's minivan, rather than climb inside. In photos of the incident, the child can be seen lying on his belly underneath the body of the car, with his head directly behind the front right wheel of Gosselin's minivan.

Janette Fennell, president of KidsAndCars.org has spoken out against the reality star's parenting. "She should have gotten out of the car to supervise them, especially when you have that many children," Fennell remarked.

The child safety expert also told RadarOnline that Gosselin and her gang are very fortunate she didn't step on the gas. "She is blessed she didn't run him over," Fennell added.

"You should never leave children unattended in or around motor vehicles. Even if they are all capable of getting themselves into the van and getting buckled up, children at that age are unpredictable."
