Two teenagers were hit crossing the street just south of 42nd and Center Monday morning on the way to school.  

Ed Fritz, who saw the aftermath of the accident, tells Newsradio 1110 KFAB 18-year-old Stephen Smith was thrown several feet after after striking the windshield.

He suffered ankle injuries and facial lacerations.  His 19-year-old sister, Makaelnne Smith, suffered facial lacerations.

Both are being held for observation.  Both are expected to be o.k.

Several doctors and nurses on their way to work at UNMC and the VA Medical Center stopped to help. Fritz said the teens were wearing dark clothing, and the collision happened just before daylight.
