Two young children were airlifted to children's hospital after a hit and run on the 7600 block of Corbin Avenue in the Winnetka area of the San Fernando Valley this morning. Both the 4 and 6-year-old are listed in serious but stable condition, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Police believe they have located suspect vehicle, but the investigation is currently ongoing, according to Officer Gil Cardenas. Circumstances surrounding the incident, which occurred at 7:47 a.m., are unknown at this time.

[Update: Fox 11 is reporting that the woman who hit the children attempted to render aid and drive them to the hospital. Because her smalle vehicle did not have room for them, she left the scene only to return with a bigger vehicle from her father's house. Witnesses thought she was leaving the scene for good and called police about a hit and run. It appears charges will not be filed.]
