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.
