WASHINGTON – Two Anne Arundel County high school students were injured in a car wreck while driving to school Tuesday morning.
The students were in a Ford Explorer as they traveled to Northeast High School when their SUV ran into a tree on Edwin Raynor Boulevard in Pasadena after 7 a.m., according to Anne Arundel County police.
Both 17-year-olds were taken to Maryland Shock Trauma. The boy has non-life-threatening injuries. But the girl is listed in critical condition, police say.
Just before 7:30 a.m., a 10th-grade girl slipped and fell while trying to cross Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard. A car traveling on the same street attempted to stop but was unable to stop because of the sloppy road conditions. The vehicles front right side hit the student.
The 15-year-old girl was alert and conscious and was taken to a local hospital as a precaution, police say.
