PHOENIX -- A mother and her two babies are in the hospital after being hit by a car in Phoenix Sunday night.

It happened shortly before 8 p.m. at 26th and Roosevelt streets, right across from Maricopa Medical Center.

The mother, believed to be in her mid-20s, was crossing the street with her children in a stroller. Police said it's not clear if the family was in a crosswalk when they were hit.

Investigators said the car that hit the family was driven by a nurse. That person did stop and remain at the scene.

The mother, whose name has not been released, reportedly is in critical condition. Her children, a baby girl and a boy between 16 and 18 months old, remain in serious condition. Their injuries reportedly were not life threatening.

Investigators said they do not believe drugs or alcohol were factors in the wreck.
