Laurel police are investigating a hit-and-run collision that injured two children and left a woman in “critical condition” Wednesday morning, the department said.
Police said the driver of a “silver, four-door vehicle” was traveling east on Gorman Avenue a little after 8 a.m. when the vehicle struck a Nissan sedan in the rear. The Nissan then hit a telephone pole near the intersection of Gorman Avenue and Eighth Street, and the silver vehicle fled the scene, going east on Gorman, police said.
The driver of the Nissan, an unidentified woman, is in “critical condition” at a hospital, police said, while two child passengers were treated at the hospital and released.
