    Surveillance footage shows the group of young children standing in a driveway when a car suddenly speeds toward them, striking the group and knocking them to the ground. In the last split seconds when the car aims at the children, some appear to brace for the impact and try to flee, but it was too late.

    "All we heard was the screech of the tires and they just turned toward us," one of the victims said. "We ended up scattered everywhere, we just go flying."

    Luckily, no major injuries occurred, according to police. However, authorities in Stoneham remain searching for the driver of the vehicle, who drove off and fled the scene.

    The crash happened just after 6:30 p.m. Sunday in front of a home near the intersection of Elm Street and MacArthur Road.

    Two of the four children who were hit by the car were hospitalized and treated for minor injuries. Authorities said the kids are just 12 and 13 years old.

    The case remains under investigation, police said Tuesday night.
