VANCOUVER — Three Grade 4 youngsters on a school outing are recovering from injuries after RCMP say they were hit by a car that veered onto the sidewalk at the University of British Columbia's Point Grey campus.

A statement from the RCMP says it happened just after noon on Wednesday.

The children, believed to be nine or 10-years old, were walking near the UBC Botanical Gardens when they were hit.

Police say a single vehicle was involved and the driver stayed at the scene and was treated for minor injuries.

They say the driver is co-operating with the investigation and intoxication is not thought to be a factor.

The Mounties' criminal collision investigation team and accident reconstruction specialists have been assigned to the case.
