VIDEO: Three small children and a woman were injured when they were hit by a car that fled the scene Friday night, a spokesperson with the Phoenix Fire Department said.
Firefighters said the most severely injured child was in stable condition and responsive. The other two children and the woman were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. “Every time I close my eyes.. I see it.. “ Stephanie Oros said. “I heard a car coming so fast. I didn’t even have the chance to even look.” Police said Oros was crossing the street with the children near 71st Avenue and Indian School Road when they were hit.
According to Oros, her 3-year-old took the brunt of the crash, and was knocked unconscious.
“I thought he was dead,” Oros said.
The 2-year-old child in a stroller was caught under the car and dragged for nearly 1,000 feet.
