CLARKS SUMMIT, Pa. -- Two children were hurt when the stroller they were in was struck by a vehicle in Lackawanna County.
It happened around 11 a.m. Friday at the corner of Bedford and Center Streets in Clarks Summit.
Police say the driver using the GPS on her phone slammed into a group of adults and children crossing the street.
It was a scene no parent wants to see -- small children surrounded by police cars after a minivan struck a stroller carrying two kids.
"My wife just came in and said someone had got hit in the crosswalk and she was running over with an ice pack," said Jordan Trask.
The ambulance soon arrived at Center and Bedford Streets.
Police say the driver was on her phone using her GPS and drove into a group of children crossing the street.
Two of them had to be taken to Geisinger Commonwealth Medical Center.
Police are still investigating this incident and tell Newswatch 16 the driver will be cited.
"They come through here every day they use the crosswalk like clockwork sometimes with stroller sometimes they have a bunch of kids walking and they have them tied together this is the first time in almost three years we have been here," said Trask.
As a parent, Sherry Sidwell says this crash could've been prevented.
"People need to be more careful, especially when we are in a residential area. People do walk through here; it is a crosswalk," Sidwell said.
"People just need to stop and think. This was thoughtlessness," Trask added.
