Vehicle hits 2 teens crossing street in Renton

UPDATE: 9:55 a.m. | A vehicle struck two young teens crossing a congested Renton street Thursday afternoon, sending both to Harborview Medical Center, one with serious injuries.

The teens, 13 and 14, were attempting to cross the 3700 block of Northeast Fourth Street from north to south when a vehicle hit them just before 5 p.m., according to Renton Police.

Police spokeswoman Terri Vickers said the boys were not in a crosswalk or at a corner.  She said it did not appear that speed, alcohol or drugs was a factor in the accident, and that the driver simply hadn’t seen the teens on the busy five-lane street.

The 13-year-old boy suffered a head injury and was in serious condition Friday morning. His companion was in stable condition.
