HARRIS COUNTY, TX — Two children were hospitalized late Saturday after being struck by a vehicle reversing out of the backyard of a Huffman residence, according to ABC13 Houston.

Harris County Sheriff’s deputies said the incident took place on Gum Tree Lane at approximately 11:15 p.m.

An early investigation indicates the children, a boy and a girl aged 5 and 8, were standing behind a vehicle as it left a birthday party. Authorities said the area had not been well lit, and both children were struck and trapped underneath the car as it backed up.

The young victims were airlifted to Texas Children’s Hospital, where they were both listed in stable condition as of early Sunday.

Responding deputies said the vehicle’s driver and two passengers did not display signs of intoxication at the time.
