FIRST ON KHQ: Teenager & Child Hit By Car In Spokane Valley

Posted: Updated:

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.
