SAN ANTONIO - A child was taken to a hospital after they were hit while trying to cross through traffic on Austin Highway Wednesday.

Police said the 3-year-old girl was transported to University Hospital in critical condition with incapacitating injuries as a result of the crash. 

The victim was with two other kids who were all trying to cross the road in the 2300 block of Austin Highway around 5:30 p.m., according to police.

A woman said she was traveling southbound on Austin Highway when she saw the trio in the center median, police said.

While two of the kids crossed, the woman said she struck the third child with her 2006 GMC Yukon after that child hesitated and walked in front of her vehicle, according to police.

The woman stopped and rendered aid. She will not face any charges as a result of the crash, police said.
