Both children, ages 6 and 14, were transported to USC Medical Center.
The older girl, who suffered a broken pelvis, broken leg and face trauma, was listed in serious but stable condition. The six-year-old suffered head trauma and was listed in critical condition.
Witnesses say the pair were crossing the street with their grandmother in a crosswalk in the 2600 block of San Fernando Road around 7:30 p.m. when they were struck by the vehicle.
Their grandmother was also injured and taken to the hospital.
The three were returning home from a trip to a local supermarket.
The driver was detained at the scene and given a field sobriety test.
He was arrested for DUI.
Neighbors say the crosswalk is dangerous because it is poorly lit.
