Three nine-year-old children have been transported to the hospital after being struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Western and Pigeon Avenue Friday afternoon in Williams Lake.
The incident happened at about 3:10 p.m., said RCMP Staff Sgt. Del Byron.
The children were taken to the hospital by family members who rushed to the scene.
The driver remained on scene.
Western and Pigeon were blocked off to drivers as police investigated and re-opened by 4 p.m.
At this time the injuries appear to be minor in nature.
Neighbours in the area were comforting the children with blankets as they waited for help to arrive.
