BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, Michigan (WNWO) —
Two teenagers, aged 13 and 16, were killed Wednesday afternoon in Bedford Township, after being struck by a truck.
A 49-year-old man from Erie drove his vehicle off of Sterns Road, near Hidden Valley Drive, before hitting them.
The two victims were walking in the grass of a private residence at the time of the incident. They were transported to ProMedica Toledo Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
Two passengers in the truck fled the scene after the crash.
Texting, alcohol, or speed do not appear to be a factor in the crash.
It remains under investigation by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
