Two teen boys, on their way to school Wednesday morning, were sent to the hospital after an SUV hit them in a crosswalk, according to Boise Police Department.
Officers were called to the scene around 7:15 a.m. A 24-year-old woman driving an SUV had reportedly turned left on Vista Avenue from Targee Street while two boys — 13 and 15 — were crossing the Vista crosswalk. She struck the boys, and one returned home to get a parent. The boys did not suffer life-threatening injuries, but were transported to the hospital, according to BPD.
The driver’s windshield was covered in ice, and that may have been a factor in the accident, police said.
The driver was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, according to BPD.
