SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley Firefighters responded to two pedestrians being hit by a car Monday afternoon at Mission & McDonald.
The two boys, ages 19 and 12, were transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart with bumps as bruises and possibly a fractured arm.
The Sheriff's Department says they were hit as they were trying to cross the street at the intersection of McDonald and Mission around 3:30pm.
The 25-year-old driver says he was adjusting his radio and did not see the two males as he was making a turn.
He was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian.
Deputies believe he was only going about 10 to 15 miles and hour when he hit the two boys.
Right now alcohol does not appear to be a factor but Deputies say this is a good reminder with all the distractions in cars that drivers always need pay attention, saying this could have been much worse.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Wind, humidity and rainfall combined precisely to create the massive killer tornado in Moore, Okla. And when they did, the awesome amount of energy released over that city dwarfed the power of the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima. Meteorologists contacted by The Associated Press used real time measurements to calculate the energy released during the storm's life span of almost an hour.>>
