An adult and three children were taken to the hospital Sunday night after being hit by a car while trying to cross a busy street in Fort Worth.

It happened around 5:40 p.m. along McCart Avenue near the intersection of Sycamore School Road.

Fort Worth Police said two drivers collided and one of the vehicles veered toward the median into the adult and children.

Fort Worth police and MedStar responded and the adult was taken to Harris Methodist Hospital and is expected to be okay.

Three children were transported to Cook Children’s Medical Center. One of them is expected to recover. Police said the other two were in serious condition Sunday night.

A baby stroller was still seen sitting in the median after the scene cleared late into the evening.

"You have a baby stroller just literally right there. I can only imagine. This is a busy street. You have cars passing through here, just seeing the baby stroller right there in the middle of it, I just can't believe it. I have kids of my own too," said Juan Najera who lives nearby.

Police said late Sunday night that the mother and one of the children will be OK, but two of the children have more serious injuries. Police have not released the ages or identities.

There’s no word on charges against the drivers involved. Fort Worth Police tell NBC 5 that the Traffic Investigation Unit will investigate the accident.
