UPDATE (3:23pm): Meridian Township police are on the lookout for a car that they say hit a mother and daughter who were waiting for the bus this morning.

It happened near the intersection of East Lake Drive and Oakpark Trail in Haslett at 7 a.m. That’s just east of Lake Lansing. (see maps below)

Police say a light colored 4-door sedan heading south on E. Lake Drive hit a 42-year-old mother and her 13-year-old daughter and took off. They are continuing to investigate to find out what happened.

The two victims were taken to a local hospital. We don’t know the extent of their injuries. Police did not say if the child and adult were related.

Video from the scene shows a bag on the side of the road and a single shoe in the middle of it.

Police closed the road for about an hour while they investigated.

6 News is working to find out other details, including how serious the injuries are, what may have caused the accident, and any updates about the car, driver, or search.
