WILLIAMSBURG, MICH (AP) — A northern Michigan mother and her 12-year-old daughter are hospitalized after being hit by different cars while walking along a rural road.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports Friday that 47-year-old Bonnie Babcock suffered a vertebrae fracture. Jordan Babcock suffered a fractured pelvis and internal injuries.

Jordan Babcock was struck Thursday night near Williamsburg, east of Traverse City. Her mother was hit by the second car as she tried to help the girl.

The 40-year-old driver of the car that hit Jordan has been charged with driving while intoxicated causing serious injury. Television station WPBN-WTOM reports that the driver of the vehicle that hit Bonnie Babcock was not charged.

Police said Bonnie Babcock was waving a light before her daughter was struck.
