Two youngsters hit by a lorry near the Morrisons supermarket in Sutton Road, Maidstone were aged 13 and seven, air ambulance staff have revealed.
The 13-year-old was taken by ambulance to London's King's College Hospital, where she is said to have been treated for broken ribs and grazes.
The seven-year-old was taken to Pembury Hospital, suffering from a sprained ankle.
Police say they were called to the accident near St Saviour's Road shortly after 5.30pm and the girls' injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
Sutton Road was closed between the junctions of Willington Street and Northumberland Road but the closure was lifted shortly before 7.30pm yesterday.
Police say they are investigating the cause of the crash and that rumours saying the lorry driver had driven off after the incident are untrue.
