A 38-year-old man was driving with his family north on Mark Twain near Florence about 3:50 p.m. when someone in a Chevrolet Impala disregarded a yield sign and struck their Lincoln Continental, said Officer Dan Donakowski, a spokesman for the Detroit Police Department.

The Chevy driver fled on foot. Meanwhile, three youths in the Lincoln were rushed to a hospital.

Two were listed in temporary condition Wednesday evening while a third, identified as a 12-year-old girl, was in critical condition, Donakowski said. It was unclear if their father was injured, he said.

Investigators did not have a full description of the other motorist.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit police at (313) 596-2260. Anonymous tips can be submitted through Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
