    Two teenagers were taken to the hospital Tuesday morning after being hit by a car in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood.

    Police say a 15-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy were crossing Tremont Street near Malcolm X Boulevard with two other teens when they were somehow hit. The driver then hit a utility pole.

    Witnesses told police that the two victims and two friends were in a crosswalk when the car ran a red light. The 16-year-old boy was pinned under the car.

    Both he and the 15-year-old girl were taken to area hospitals.

    The boy was at Brigham and Women's Hospital Tuesday night. His family says he underwent surgery and is doing much better.

    The girl, identified by her father as 15-year-old Lisset Medina, who is a student at Madison Park High, miraculously only suffered bruises to her face. Juan Medina, speaking exclusively to NBC10 Boston, says Lisset has no broken bones or internal injuries.

    Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said the driver was also taken to an area hospital. His injuries were not considered serious and he was released from the hospital and questioned by detectives. 

    The driver's car was impounded by Boston police and is being checked for any mechanical problems.

    Law enforcement sources tell the NBC10 Boston Investigators the driver of the car is 34-year-old Kevin Small. Police investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.

    No charges have been filed.

    Crosswalk Crisis: Dangerous Intersections in Boston

    [NECN] Crosswalk Crisis: Dangerous Intersections in Boston

    Two Boston high school students were hit by a car as they crossed the street at the intersection of Tremont Street and Malcolm X Boulevard in Roxbury on Tuesday. Safety advocates say the intersection is a hazard and that changes need to be made to make sure tragedy doesn't happen again.

    NBC10 Boston Investigator Ally Donnelly has been tracking dangerous intersections across the city for months. She discovered there were at least 772 pedestrian crashes throughout the city last year, 12 of which were fatal. That number was down from the year before after the city lowered the speed limit, and installed bike lanes, speed bumps and lights in some neighborhoods, but even the mayor has admitted more needs to be done. Ally Donnelly has more.
