LAKE WORTH, Fla. (AP) - Five pedestrians have been injured after authorities say they were struck by a driver who then fled the scene.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports two adults and three children have been hospitalized. One of the adults, a female, is in critical condition.

The children, who range from 3 to 17 years of age, sustained minor injuries.

Deputies are looking for a beige 2000 Ford SUV that likely has front end damage. The vehicle also has a Mickey Mouse sticker on the front passenger side.

Investigators say they do have a person of interest in the case who may have been involved in an argument with the pedestrians earlier Sunday morning.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
