Two young friends on bicycles were injured when they were struck by vehicles Monday afternoon in separate collisions at the same Georgetown intersection.
The first accident happened about 3:30 p.m. when an 8-year-old boy was struck by a car as he rode across Airport Way South at Corson Avenue South, police said. The boy suffered minor scrapes but was not seriously injured, according to a police account.
The second boy, 12, saw his friend get hit and was riding across Airport Way South to help when he, too, was struck by a car. Police said the boy was thrown from his bicycle and possibly suffered a broken leg.
The Seattle Fire Department treated the 8-year-old at the scene and transported the 12-year-old to Harborview Medical Center for further evaluation.
Officers are interviewing both drivers about the collisions. So far, officers do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in either collision.
