LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police are escorting ambulances to the hospital after an accident at Third and Main Streets. Witnesses say it appears an SUV hit pedestrians just outside Actors Theater of Louisville on Main Street near the Yum! Center. 

According to what police call 'preliminary reports from witnesses', they say the SUV may have run a red light as the mother and her two children, who are both under age 7 were crossing the street. 

They say three appeared to be coming from the Yum! Center where Disney on Ice was held Thursday night. 

The woman, six months pregnant, was taken to University Hospital with what police say are non life-threatening injuries and police say she gave birth prematurely. The woman and the baby remain hospitalized at University Hospital. 

Police say the two children, ages 6 and 3, also have non-life threatening injuries and remain at Kosair. They have not said what genders they are. 

Traffic officers have arrested the male driver of the SUV and will release his name and any charges Friday morning. Police say a female passenger in the SUV was not injured and was not arrested.

The driver of the SUV was uninjured and remained at the scene. Police say those streets will be closed for several hours while they investigate.
