The 11-month-old baby boy who was hit by a SUV in Pukehina on Monday remains in a critical condition in Starship hospital.

The 2-year-old girl who was at Waikato Hospital has been discharged, and the 33-year-old mother is in a stable condition at Tauranga hospital.

The woman was pushing her children in a stroller on the side of Otamarakau Valley Rd in Pukehina when they were hit by an SUV towing a trailer, which veered off the road.

Rescuers describe finding a wrecked pushchair on the side of the road and a mother so badly injured she could not reach her children.
