Law enforcement officials report a serious traffic accident on Northwest 16th Street that left a teenager critically injured. This was after he was hit by a vehicle that crashed into him as he was walking along the road.
According to the news release by authorities, they say the accident happened on Northwest 16th Street where a teen had just gotten off a bus and was walking along the sidewalk when two vehicles crashed on the road in front of him. One of the vehicles, a Ford Mustang, lost control and struck the teenager after the initial collision, pinning the teen to a pole.
EMS arrived to the scene of the accident soon after it happened to administer on-site first aid to the injured victims in the incident. Emergency crews reported that the teen was critically injured while another driver also suffered various injuries in the wreck.
The other driver involved in the first accident was not hurt and remained at the scene of the crash while the two injured victims were taken to the hospital by ambulance. The teen remained in critical condition after he arrived to the hospital.
Police did not say why or how the first crash happened and are still looking into the cause. They say the incident is still under investigation and no further details were released.
