A crash at a Fullerton intersection injured a mother and her two children when they were struck by the vehicle while crossing the street.
Emergency crews responded to calls just before 3:30 p.m. of a Ford Focus hitting three people on Rolling Hill Drive near Puente Street, according to police reports.
The family was leaving Beechwood Elementary School at the time of the accident. The 9-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy, led by their mother, crossed the street in a marked crosswalk when they were hit.
The Focus was driven by a 90-year-old woman who kept driving for several hundred yards after the accident, before crashing into a tree.
According to witnesses, the driver seemed unaware of her surroundings when she was pulled from her car. Investigators are unsure if the accident was caused by a medical condition.
The driver was taken to the hospital in critical injuries. The mother and her children were also taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and are expected to survive.
