(BANT) – Two young children have been hospitalized in what police say was a major injury accident involving a distracted driver Sunday afternoon in South San Francisco.

It happened at 4:55 p.m. in the 200 block of Arroyo Drive near Buri Buri Park where the children, ages 3 and 5, were crossing the street in a crosswalk with their parents. Police say a 61-year-old San Francisco man was driving west and hit the two children while they were in the crosswalk.

It’s not clear what distracted the driver but police say he did not see the family before hitting them. He stopped at the scene and cooperated with investigators, police said.

The two children were taken to a hospital for treatment of their injuries. Police did not have details on their conditions.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is encouraged to call South San Francisco police at (650) 877-8900 and ask for Officer Hart while referring to case number 17-4229.
