Three children and two adults were hit by a car outside of a Highland Park elementary school Friday morning, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

The incident occurred at about 8:12 a.m. at Yorkdale Elementary School, near the corner of Avenue 57 and Meridian Street, officials said.

Video from KTLA showed firefighters loading victims onto stretchers before whisking them away to area hospitals. The conditions of the victims were not immediately available, although they appeared to be conscious and talking.

“Some are at least seriously injured,” said Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing, officials said.
