Five people were injured Friday as they walked through a crosswalk in Highland Park. The driver may have run a stop sign, witnesses told police.

The accident happened in the 900 block of North Avenue 57 at about 8:15 a.m. near Yorkdale Elementary School, according to Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Two adults and three children were injured in the incident. A 52-year-old grandmother and one of the children were transported in critical condition following the accident, Scott said in an interview with KTLA.

A 32-year-old woman and the two other children suffered only minor injuries. They were taken to local hospitals for future treatment, the Los Angeles Fire Department said in an interview with KTLA. All the victims were related to one another.

The three children were students at Yorkdale Elementary School. One boy and one girl were third graders at the school. The other child, a girl, was a fifth grader at the school, the Los Angeles School Police Chief Steven Zipperman posted on Twitter.

Witnesses said the driver, an 87-year-old man, failed to stop at a stop sign before striking the family. He was uninjured, authorities said. No charges have been filed.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Division is investigating the crash.
