A WOMAN and two children were taken to hospital after being hit by a car in the Cotswold.
The boy, aged nine, and girl, aged seven, were taken to hospital after a car collided with them on the High Street in Mickleton near to Chipping Campden at 5pm on Saturday.
The three people injured were all from London, however it is unclear whether they are related.
The nine-year-old boy was airlifted to hospital in Birmingham with serious injuries, while the woman was taken for treatment in Coventry, with what Gloucestershire Police described as "serious injuries".
The seven-year-old girl suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital in Coventry.
A spokesman for Gloucestershire Police confirmed none of the injuries were thought to be life threatening.
The driver of the car, a local man, was not injured during the collision.
No arrests have been made following the collision.
Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police should call 101 quoting incident 348 of September 22.

    If the boy was taken to a different hospital with "serious injuries" it is probably because Birmingham had a unit and a surgeon available that could treat those specific injuries, whereas the mother and sister did not need the same medical attention....! I hope the family recover.
