BRICK, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say an SUV has struck teenage pedestrians crossing a road on the New Jersey coast, injuring two boys, one of them critically.
Brick police say the crash happened early Saturday night at an intersection.
They say a Brick woman was driving southbound and approaching an intersection when four boys began to cross the road. Authorities say the light turned green for southbound traffic as the boys crossed into the woman’s lane.
