Police say the girls are sisters, and were walking with their mother at the time. The mother was not injured. The girls’ father arrived on scene and and was so shaken by what transpired that had to be assessed by paramedics.

It happened at around 1:15 p.m.

Police say the vehicle, which remained on scene, was making a left turn when the children were struck.

No further details were immediately available.
