CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Four people, including two children, were rushed to the hospital after a serious hit-and-run accident in northwest Charlotte.

Eyewitness News saw a stuffed animal and stroller thrown out of one of the vehicles.

On Monday night, police are still looking for one of the drivers involved in the accident at Oakdale Road and Brookshire Boulevard.

One of the victims at Carolinas Medical Center is in critical condition Monday night.

"She just came across the median. I do not know how she did it, but she just came across the median head-on," said Tameka Green.

Green was driving on Brookshire Boulevard with her son Monday morning when she heard squealing tires and then the impact.

"It is very nerve-racking right now, like, I am still shaking," she said.

She instantly saw where the woman driving a Honda Civic heading inbound on Brookshire Boulevard had crossed the median, slamming head-on into an Expedition that had a father and his young son and daughter inside.

"I told her she is a superstar now because everybody came here to save her and I told her that the paramedics and stuff are like her superheroes and it calmed her down a bit," said Green.

"My mom had the little girl sing her ABC's and I hugged the little boy because he was cold and scared."

Police believe there was a third car involved in the scenario. They said a dark tan or pewter Cadillac riding next to the Honda either veered toward the Honda or actually collided with it, causing it to go into the median and lose control, but that Cadillac took off and is still missing.

Everyone is the two vehicles was rushed to the hospital.

"The little boy has a cut above his left and the little girl has bruise from her seat belt strap," said Green.
