A nine-year-old girl and an 18-month-old boy had been struck by a 2003 Honda. The children were taken to LSU-Health where their conditions are described as serious.

Investigators say the driver was headed southbound on Youree Drive, approaching Stoner Avenue when she saw several people walking along the west side of the roadway and began to slow down. She said she saw a woman pull several children back on the grassy median and she assumed the street was clear.

But after she headed through the green light at the intersection of Stoner Avenue and Youree Drive, she felt an impact. The driver  said she turned around and returned to find both children injured along the roadway.

Authorities were able to determine the nine-year-old was carrying the toddler at the time of the crash.

An investigation continues.
