The two women, the 1-year-old girl and the 3-year-old boy were taken to a hospital in critical condition, Bertagna said, but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The driver, who police identified as a woman in her 50s, was also taken to a hospital for a “medical condition,” Bertagna said. Police did not specify what the condition was or whether it related to the accident.
Based on their preliminary investigation, police believe that the driver didn’t see the pedestrians, who were crossing from the south to north side of Civic Center. The intersection where they were crossing has no marked crosswalk, Bertagna said.
Civic Center was closed from North Bush Street to Spurgeon as investigators went over the scene. A crushed stroller was left in the street after the crash.
Police believe that the accident was caught on surveillance video, Bertagna said, and hope to access a copy of the footage on Friday.
