two teenagers are fighting for theilive this morning. a teenage girl hit by a car and a teenage boy hit by the same car all while trying to get to school. i'm allison seymour. >> and i'm tony perkins. this happened in the 3100 block of brinkly road in temple hills near crossland high school. sarah simons is live there this
11:01 am
morning with the latest. sarah. >> reporter: tony, this happened on a very busy road. as we noticed since we've been out here. it happened at this metro bus stop where high school kids were being picked up to go to school. we know the two people serio injured, a 14-year-old girl and a teenage boy also taken to the hospital. he is expected to be okay. now the crash happened as you said just after 7:00 this morning. several teen-agers were waiting at the bus stop heading to school at crossland high when a woman driving a cream colored lincoln town car came up over the hill. the three boys were watching as one of their classmates was hit by a car. >> there were no cars in sight when we were standing this and when she crossed the street, the car over there just came out of nowhere and hit her and she flew in the air and then the car swerved and then it hit
11:02 am
another car and then the boy, some little kids were right there and he was trying to push them out of the way and the guy got hit too. >> we were just trying to keep her face off the grass so she could breathe. but she tried to move, but it was just -- we were just more concerned that she was breathing. >> reporter: now we understand there were five other people in theother two vehicles that were involved in this crash. we understand they have minor injuries and are expected to be okay. investigators are stiltrying to piece together the evidence and figure out what happened here and why that driver hit that young girl. it's unclear if she just didn't see her. we don't know at this point. but investigators are looking into the fact that this is an area that does not have crosswalks. we have two bus stops here where people come here frequently to try to pick up a bus and there are no ways to get across here safely with the hill just coming up here to this bus stop. so it can be a very dangerous situation for anyone in the
11:03 am
area. tony, allison, back to you. >> what a terrible thing to wit. sarah simons in temple hills, thank you ry much. meanwhile in a separate incident, several people were taken to the hospital today after an accident involving a metro bus. a spokesperson saythe sbus was clipped by a vehicle on i295 near malcolm x. avenue southeast. there were 50 people on the bus, five passengers were hurt. the jeer -- the injuries are not life-threatening. no word on if either driver was cited. following a developing story out of georgetown, so the called cuddler may have struck again. a woman said she woke up to a strange man lying xt to her around 4:00 in the mog inrnn ino the 3700 block of o. street. now the m.o ois similar to a string of attacks, including one on sunday. karen gray houston is live on the scene with the latest.
