Parents Call for Action after Kids Hit by Car

Posted May 8th, 2014 @ 6:28am

Parents in New Brunswick, New Jersey are demanding safety improvements after three children were hit by a car.

The students were crossing Livingston Avenue on their way home from school on Tuesday afternoon when an SUV struck them.

The two 14 year old girls and 6 year old boy reportedly tried to cross the road at a crosswalk, but there was no crossing guard on duty.

Parents say it's a dangerous road and safety improvements need to be made.  They rallied yesterday and marched to City Hall, calling for action.

City officials said a crossing guard left last month and a new one is still being trained.

The SUV was driven by New Brunswick Fire Director Robert Rawls.  He was on duty and it was a city owned vehicle.

He remained at the scene and was not charged.  An investigation into the accident is continuing.

The three injured children remain hospitalized.  One of the 14 year old girls and the 6 year old boy are in good condition.  The other 14 year old girl is in fair condition.
