DENVER (CBS4) - A family of three was crossing the street at the intersection of South University Boulevard and East Ohio Avenue in Denver's Bonnie Brae neighborhood on Friday when they were hit by a car.

Tiffanie Strasser had both her children, 3-year-old Austin and 6-year-old Audrey, in the stroller when she was crossing the street. A car turned left and hit them in the crosswalk.
