Vehicle hits two teenagers crossing Oak Park street


By Bill Lindelof

The two teenagers hit by a minivan this morning crossing a busy street in Oak Park were students at American Legion High School, an official with the Sacramento City Unified School District said.

A black Scion traveling eastbound on Broadway near 39th Street struck the two 17-year-old girls about 8 a.m. One of the girls was reported in critical condition and the other also had serious injuries, police said.

The girls were struck in the middle of the street just east of the high school. Earlier police reported that the girls did not appear to have been in a crosswalk when they were hit by the van but now officers say that is under investigation.

The 26-year-old driver of the van stopped and was interviewed by officers. The circumstances that led up to the accident are under investigation.
