Two Port Richey Teens Hit By SUV, Critically Injured

PORT RICHEY, Fla. – Two teens were flown to the hospital after a pedestrian crash Friday night, just after 6:00 PM.

Florida Highway Patrol says an SUV was traveling down State Road 52 at Chicago Avenue in Hudson and had a green light. Investigators say a 13 and 14-year-old boy, both from Port Richey, crossed the road despite a red pedestrian signal and went into the path of the SUV.

FHP says the SUV collided with the boys, who suffered critical injuries. Pasco County Fire Rescue says the teens were both flown from the scene to the hospital as pediatric trauma alerts.
