ROXBURY (WHDH) – Two teens were struck and injured Tuesday morning by a car in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood.
Officers responded at around 11 a.m. to the intersection of Tremont Street and Malcolm X Boulevard and found a car that had slammed head-on into a pole.
“I was laying in bed and all I heard was a big boom. I thought it was construction going on,” said Alan Pierre. “This intersection is very dangerous.”
The car struck the teens, a male and female, as they crossed street near the Roxbury Crossing T station. Officials said the teens were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and both are expected to be OK.
The front end of the car was left wedged between the pole. Police told 7News that the driver may have had a medical situation. The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. He is being questioned by investigators. It is unclear if charges will be filed.
Most of the area was blocked off for about four hours as police worked to reconstruct the crash scene.
