Gallup police remain on the lookout for a vehicle that hit two kids near the intersection of Ford Canyon Drive and East Historic Highway 66, according to a police report.

Gallup Police Officer Chris Molina wrote that on July 9 a grey four-door Dodge pickup truck struck the kids while they were waiting for their mother to unload her car.  The ages of the children in question were 2 and 12 years old, according to the police report by Molina.

The suspected vehicle was equipped with a “push bumper,” similar to the one on police cars, Molina wrote. At least one of the injured kids had to be airlifted to an Albuquerque hospital.

The incident took place on the stretch of road in front of several low-budget motels.
