Both children, ages 4 and 5, were taken to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health with head injuries, police said.

The driver, the children’s uncle, was taken to an area hospital to get checked out. Police were interviewing witnesses to find out exactly what happened.

Officers are looking for a navy blue SUV, possibly a Chevy Trailblazer, that fled the scene following the crash.

In February, that same intersection was the site of a crash that killed a pregnant Indianapolis woman. In that case, the driver got out of the car and left the scene. He was later arrested.
