TUCKER, Ga. (AP) — Police in DeKalb County are seeking a driver who hit two children and kept going.

Media reports say a 2-year-old boy was killed and his 4-year-old sister injured when a small truck hit them as it made a right turn around 5 p.m. Saturday.

Police are looking for a small, older model white truck with a camper on the back.

Police say the children were standing at the entrance of a Walmart store in Tucker waiting to cross the road.

The children were taken to a hospital. The boy died from his injuries, but his sister was expected to recover.

No additional details were released.
