BATON ROUGE- Police are investigating an accident involving two children near North Sherwood Forest.

The incident happened Thursday night around 7:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Marcia Drive. Police believe two juveniles ran across the street as a vehicle was approaching. In efforts to avoid hitting the kids, the driver attempted to swerve the car striking one of the juveniles and a pole.

Authorities say it is unclear if the second juvenile was struck or suffered any injuries from evasive actions.

Both victims were transported to a local hospital. Police say the injuries do not appear life-threatening at the time.

Authorities told WBRZ Friday that the driver was issued a citation for driving without a license. The driver hasn't been identified at this time.
