Mom, Kids Get Hit-and-Run, Hit Again Lying in Street

Police are looking for the driver of an SUV that  struck a 41-year-old woman and two children in Brooklyn.

The mother, her daughter, and her son were crossing Utica Avenue at Avenue "H" when a white SUV hit them and just kept going according the NYPD.

The woman and an 11-year-old girl are listed in stable condition. An 8-year-old boy is listed in critical condition.

The pedestrians were crossing a Utica Avenue at Avenue H Sunday night when a white SUV plowed into them and took off, according to police. The three were then struck by a second vehicle.

Police said the driver of the second vehicle, who stayed at the scene, was later arrested for driving with a suspended license.

Sunday's hit-and-run incident was the second in three weeks. Elijah Thomas, 8, was walking with his mother and sister in nearby Canarsie on Jan. 22, when a light colored SUV hit him and kept going. He died in front of his mother's eyes.

Police are looking for any and all tips on either tragedy.
