LEALMAN (FOX 13) -

A man and his two young grandchildren were hit by a car Friday.

The crash happened at a car dealership at the intersection of 66th Avenue North, just south of the Pinellas Square Mall.

According to Pinellas Park Police, a car ran a red light and slammed into the three of them.

Fransisco Torres, 59, his 10-month-old granddaughter and 3-year-old grandson were headed to a neighborhood park when the car ran a red light, and spun out of control.

David and Alicia Schell were stopped at a red light on U.S. 19 and saw it all unfold.

"I saw the car spinning out and I covered- I'ver been in a couple of accidents so you brace yourself, and my husband screamed the babies and I said what babies, he said they were just hit," Alicia Shell said.

"The babies went flying in front of our car in their buggie, they have hair on the curb down there, they hit hard, bounced and rolled into the parking lot," David said.

Torres is in serious condition at Bayfront Medical Center. The kids are at all childrens with undisclosed injuries...

"The two little girls were still strapped in and they were crying, me and another woman finally got them calmed down and that felt good, and it was just, they got hit hard, I mean part of their hair, their scalps was stuck to the pavement," Alicia Shell said.

None of the injuries are thought to be life-threatening, including those of Joseph Bosworth, the driver with the green light on his way to work; and Khattaphone Chantharat, the other driver, who got a ticket for running a red light.
