NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Police said a North Brunswick man will likely be charged after reportedly hitting two children in the city Monday night.

Capt. J.T. Miller said that a mother and her three children were crossing Livingston Avenue at the Wellington Place intersection at about 6:38 p.m. on Halloween when two of the children were hit by a Toyota Camry that then fled the scene.

The injured children, police said, were a 14-month-old female in a stroller and her eight-year-old sister.
