A cement truck struck three pedestrians walking across Junction Boulevard and 55th Avenue in Elmhurst on Wednesday afternoon.

A woman and her two children were transported to Elmhurst Hospital after they were hit by a cement truck at Junction Boulevard and 55th Avenue in Elmhurst, the FDNY said.

FDNY received a call about the collision at 2:34 p.m. All three pedestrians were reportedly standing at the crosswalk when the cement truck struck them after making a right turn. They were transported to Elmhurst Hospital and according to police, the children have minor injuries, while the woman suffered a severe leg injury.

State Senator Jose Peralta, along with Councilwoman Julissa Copeland-Ferras recently visited the intersection of Junction Boulevard and Northern Boulevard to propose to the DOT several traffic safety measures to make the area safer. The visit was scheduled days after Ovidio Jamarillo, a Corona teen, was struck and killed in a hit-and-run after attending a friend’s grandmother’s funeral.

“Here we go again. Just days after 17-year-old Ovidio Jamarillo lost his life to a hit-and-run driver in Elmhurst, we are now learning that two adults, and two children ages three and five, have been seriously injured after being struck by a vehicle in Corona, with at least one victim now reportedly in critical condition,”  Peralta said. “It is further troubling that this collision took place within steps of a public school just around the time of dismissal.”

The 110th Precinct advised people on their Twitter account to stay away from the area.
