Baunatal (dpa / lhe) - After an accident in which two unknown children in Baunatal (Kassel district) are said to have been hit by a car, the police are looking for witnesses. The mother of the two children, who were probably siblings, is said to have come to the scene of the accident after the collision on Monday and drove away with the boy and girl in the car, the police said on Wednesday.
A 37-year-old woman stated that she had hit an eight-year-old boy and a twelve-year-old girl with her car. The two children suddenly crossed the street, apparently without paying attention to the traffic. They were thrown to the ground in the collision and probably suffered minor injuries.
Then the mother of the children came with a car. After a short conversation, she loaded the siblings into the car and drove away. The 37-year-old driver then alerted the police out of concern for the children who might be injured. Officials are hoping for witnesses.
