The accident was reported just after 7:14 p.m.
The 6-year-old is reportedly in serious condition. The 8 and 10-year-old had moderate injuries.
The suspect vehicle was described as a silver or gray older model possibly a Honda or Toyota with tinted windows.
It is unknown if the car had any passengers.
