Tulsa police said a two year-old is dead and two woman are in the hospital after they were hit by a car in south Tulsa Monday night. 

Officers said two women and one child were hit around 7:30 pm near the Warehouse Market at 62nd and Peoria. Officers said the boy died at the hospital. One of the women is expected to recover. Police said the toddler's mother is in critical condition with brain injuries.  

Police said the women and the child were crossing Peoria when they were hit. Officers said the driver didn't see them walking until the last second, partially because of low light on that part of the road. So far the driver has not been cited. Investigators think the driver was not speeding at the time.

Outspoken :-( it's not fair to blame the driver.

that area does need more lighting, but also the driver should have had brighter lights. Its a shame it aways takes a life of a child to get people to let the city know what needs to be done in their area! Prayers to their family for the lost child, and for the women to recover! HOW BOUT THE CITY START EXPECTING THINGS LIKE THIS TO POSSIBLY HELP PREVENT ALL THESE HITS BASED ON LOCTION & CONDITION OF THE STREETS ETC.
