Three pedestrians, including two children, were taken to a Baltimore hospital in serious condition after being hit by a vehicle on Route 40 in Edgewood early Wednesday afternoon, the Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company reported.
The driver of a Ford Fiesta failed to yield while the pedestrians were in the crosswalk, Maryland State Police Sgt. Cummins, of the Bel Air Barrack, said Thursday.
Cummins said the driver, whose name he did not have, was cited for traffic violations.
All the pedestrians were taken to Johns Hopkins Children's Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, Cummins said.
Route 40 in the area of Paul Martin Drive was shut to all westbound traffic after the accident was called in at 2:18 p.m., the Harford County Volunteer Fire & EMS Association reported on social media. The highway was re-opened by 4:30 p.m.
