2 teens hit by car in crosswalk near school
The two 14-year-olds were hit shortly before 7 a.m. Monday by a Honda Civic driving south on Lark Ellen Avenue about 30 mph, the California Highway Patrol said.
The driver was a woman about 30 years old, who told investigators she didn't see the teens, who were walking near Gladstone High School in Covina, CHP officials said.
The blunt-force injuries were severe enough to require both children to be flown by helicopter to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, offiicals said.
