LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two children have been hit by cars in Louisville within minutes of each other.

One was hit at Taylor Boulevard and Bicknell Avenue in the Hazelwood neighborhood and the other was hit at 23rd Street and Broadway.

The incidents are totally separate of each other.

At 23rd and Broadway, police say a 15-year-old boy stepped off a TARC bus and, while trying to cross the street, was hit by an oncoming car. He was transported to the hospital in what police say is serious condition.

The driver stopped and cooperated with police, who say they don't anticipate charges in the case.

At Taylor Boulevard and Bicknell Avenue, police say a child ran into the roadway and was hit by three separate vehicles. The child was also transported to the hospital with what police say are serious injuries.

Police are asking for the public's help in locating a vehicle involved in the incident at Taylor and Bicknell. Authorities are looking for a yellow Volkswagen Beetle, that has possible damage to the left front and side of the vehicle.

"It's horrible because people speed up and down this road all the time," said neighbor Chelsea Hawk. "It's sad because kids walk up and down here all the time and crossing the street without parents with them."

Police are continuing to investigate both cases.
