Two juvenile teenagers were struck Thursday as they tried to cross busy Northeast Fourth Street during the evening rush hour, critically injuring one of them.
Witnesses contacted Renton Police at 4:50 p.m. to report the accident on the 3700 block of NE 4th Street. The two teens were struck by a vehicle driving eastbound as the pair of youths attempted to cross the north side of the street to the south side, according to a news release.
One teenager sustained serious injuries to his body and head, and was transported to Harborview Medical Cetner in serious condition. The second teenager suffered injuries to his body and was taken to Overlake Hospital for medical treatment.
Police did not say whether the teens were in a crosswalk or crossing against a traffic signal, according to the Seattle Times.
Police say the man driving the vehicle that hit the teens was uninjured. Investigators say the adult male driver was not speeding or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
