Toronto police say three people have been charged and another is being sought after three people were injured in a hit-and-run, including a 10-year-old boy who’s now in life-threatening condition.

Police say the incident happened just before noon on Thursday when the boy, his mother and an unrelated 50-year-old man were waiting to cross a road in the Scarborough area.

Investigators say a black Chevrolet Cruze lost control and mounted the sidewalk before hitting the three pedestrians, leaving the adults with non-life-threatening injuries.

They say a 20-year-old man, 20-year-old woman and 17-year-old girl were arrested after the car was found in Whitby, Ont.

The three were charged with being accessories to the offence, while the teenager was also charged with obstructing a peace officer.

Police say their investigation is ongoing and they are asking anyone with information about the fourth person, who they say was seen walking away from the incident.
