NEW BRUNSWICK - The New Brunswick fire official who struck and injured three children with his city-owned SUV has been issued two traffic summonses, according to the office of the city's mayor.

Fire Director Robert Rawls was ticketed for careless driving and failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk, the mayor's office said. The tickets are motor vehicle violations and Rawls is not charged with a crime.

Authorities say Rawls was on duty and in a city-owned SUV when he struck two 14-year-old girls and a 6-year-old boy that were walking home from school on Livingston Avenue on Tuesday. The kids were all taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. They were listed in good condition as of Thursday.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office says it is continuing its investigation.
