MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two pedestrians were struck by a vehicle Monday morning near Maple Grove High School.
The incident happened at about 7:15 a.m. along 93rd Avenue and Fernbrook Lane North.
Maple Grove police said that a 15- and 16-year-old boy were the two victims in the incident. The 15-year-old boy was treated at the scene and released.
On Monday afternoon, a representative for the Maple Grove Senior High said that one of the victims is a student at the school. However, the school could not confirm any details about the student.
“Our focus is on supporting the injured student and the student’s family, as well as all Maple Grove Senior High students and staff who are concerned about their school family member,” the school official said.
The 16-year-old boy was taken to North Memorial Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Authorities said they are still investigating, but said alcohol was not an apparent factor.
