NEW BRUNSWICK - The New Brunswick fire official who struck and injured three children with his city-owned SUV has been issued two traffic summonses, according to the office of the city's mayor.

Fire Director Robert Rawls was ticketed for careless driving and failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk, the mayor's office said. The tickets are motor vehicle violations and Rawls is not charged with a crime.
