Editor's Note (Sept. 16, 2022, 4:15 p.m. ET): Wallingford police released Ring camera video of a truck they said was involved in the hit-and-run, but now say the truck in the video was not the one suspected of hitting the children.

Two people were taken to the hospital after being hit by a pickup truck in Wallingford Wednesday evening, police said.

Three minors were walking along Highland Avenue near Johnson Road around 5:45 p.m. when two were hit by the truck, according to police.

The driver sped off after hitting the two victims, police said.

The vehicle is described as a newer dark-colored full-size pickup truck. The truck may have damage to the front passenger side bumper area, police said.

Both of the victims were taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are asking anyone with information on the truck, or who may have surveillance video from the area to contact the Wallingford Police Traffic Division at (203) 294-2815
