Students injured after being hit by pickup


St. Louis – Two teens are being treated for injuries after being hit by a pickup truck in St. Louis.

The accident happened around 11:30 a.m. Friday as the teens were on the sidewalk at Grand and Page.

Police say the truck was speeding when the driver tried to turn and lost control, striking an 18-year-old woman and 19-year-old man.

The woman is in critical but stable condition. The man is in stable conditions. Their names were not released.

Witnesses chased down the suspect and held him until police arrived.

Police say the pickup matches the description of a vehicle that fled when officers responded to a call about someone using drugs prior to the accident. But they say the truck was not being chased.
