INDIANAPOLIS -- Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department are investigating a hit-and-run crash that left two children injured Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 8:20 a.m. at East New York Street and North Bradley Avenue. Police said two children were inside the car when it was hit; the car flipped over after the impact. 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 say the vehicle that fled the scene was a navy blue SUV, possibly a Chevy Trailblazer.

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.

This is a developing story.
