PHOENIX - An accident involving a truck leaves a mom and her two children in the hospital this morning.

It all happened near Cave Creek and Hatcher last night just before 10 p.m.

The mom was crossing the street mid-block with her two-and three-year olds when they were hit.

Police say it's a problem that happens way too often in the area.

The mom and her kids were taken to the hospital and are expected to be okay.

Officials say, the driver of the truck, didn't appear to be intoxicated, but rather just didn't see them.
