Niagara Falls, NY (October 8, 2019) – Two children, identified only as a 10-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister, were injured in an auto-pedestrian accident in Niagara Falls on Monday afternoon, October 7th. The incident took place at around 3:45 p.m. in the 2600 block of Pine Avenue.
According to officials with the Niagara Falls Police Department Crash Management Team, the two children were crossing the road near 26th Street when they were hit by a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country. The impact of the accident caused the girl to strike a car that had stopped to let them cross while her brother was thrown into the street. Neither the 79-year-old female driver of the Chrysler nor her 81-year-old passenger was injured.
Fire officials arrived at the scene along with EMTs who transported both children to Oishei Children’s Hospital. Both victims are expected to survive the accident.
The collision remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
