UPDATE: RICHLAND, Wash. - Two teenagers are in the hospital after they were hit by a car this morning.

Richland Police say two seventeen year old Richland High School students were crossing in a crosswalk on Jadwin Avenue heading to school.  

Officers say 42-year-old Juan Ramirez, from Richland didn't see the boys and hit them with his car.

Police say the car hit one teen in the feet, but the other went onto the hood and hit the car's windshield.

Paramedics brought them both to Kadlec General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Officers believe wet roadway conditions and the fact that it was dark outside contributed to the accident.
