HOUSTON, TX – Two children, a 2-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy, were sent to the hospital today after being hit by a car while trying to cross the street without an adult, according to a report by KPRC-2.
The accident happened just before 1 p.m. when the two children attempted to cross the street at the intersection of Fondren Road and Fonmeadow Drive. According to the children’s grandmother, they had been sent to go to a grocery store near their home and were not meant to have crossed the street.
The children are expected to recover, though one received a broken arm and the other suffered minor injuries.
According to investigators, the traffic light was green, and the driver of the car had not seen the children while they were crossing the street.
The driver stayed with the children at the scene of the accident for several hours, according to the report, and is not currently facing charges.
Child Protective Services may possibly become involved in the investigation, which is ongoing at this time.
