The victims, two 14-year-olds and a 6-year-old, were taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and were listed in fair condition as of 9 p.m., according to ABC 7. The ABC 7 website reports that the injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, which is leading the investigation, has said that the white SUV was being driven by the New Brunswick Fire Director. It is still unknown if the SUV was a township-issued vehicle. The prosecutor’s office did not immediately return calls for comment.

ABC 7 spoke to local parents and reported that “the children were walking home from the school at the time, and there was no crossing guard at the intersection.”

The incident occurred on Livingston Avenue in New Brunswick. The street has been shut down from Sanford Street to Handy Street as the investigation continues.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates as more information becomes available. See the ABC 7 video below.
