Boy and grandmother struck

A B.C. grandmother and her grandsons are in hospital today after being struck by a car while walking to school in Abbotsford Monday morning.

Witnesses said the victims were walking to school when they were struck by a Toyota Yaris on Ridgeview Drive at around 8:15 a.m. Monday morning.

Early reports indicate that two family members the grandmother, in her sixties and a five-year-old boy, were seriously hurt and were rushed to hospital via air ambulance. The other child, a toddler, suffered only minor injuries.

"I noticed this car was on the road and a lady was screaming and I noticed the kids were lying on the ground," Jasdeep Singh Gill tells CTV. "An older grandma had actually hit the windshield and she fell down and the car had I think maybe gone over her legs."

It's unclear whether the victims had been trying to cross the street, but police said they were hit east of the Townline Road intersection.

Police said the driver of the Toyota remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.
