KEYPORT -

A grandmother and her two grandchildren were struck by an out-of-control car in Keyport Tuesday afternoon.

The grandmother was pushing a baby stroller with her infant grandchild inside when the three were struck on Main and Butler streets.

The Acura that struck the trio continued to travel about a block away and crashed into a utility pole. Witnesses say that the driver was a woman and that there was a young child inside.

All five people were injured and taken to the hospital for treatment. It was not immediately clear how serious the injuries were.

The Keyport Police Department and Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating the crash.
