A five-year-old girl is in hospital with critical injuries after she was struck by two cars that collided in the intersection of Cornwall Avenue and Arbutus Street on Wednesday morning.

Vancouver police said the child was standing on the sidewalk with her father and siblings around 11am, when two vehicles collided and went over the curb.

“We believe the young girl and her father and siblings were waiting to cross the road and at the same time, there were two vehicles that collided in the intersection,” VPD spokesperson Sgt. Steve Addison told CBC News.

Addison said the force of the collision sent the vehicles over the curb, hitting the girl. Responders took to the scene and the child was sent to hospital.
