New details on breaking news, we brought you at six.
The two teenagers were hit at a busy intersection in south Tulsa.
Police say the teens were running across the street near 51st and Sheridan when they were struck by an SUV.
FOX23 went to the scene and spoke with officers and the best friend of the boy’s hit by the car.
We called the hospital and they told us the two teens are in stable condition.
But when cops first arrived around 5:30 Monday night, they didn't think it looked good for the two kids hit by an SUV.
A busy intersection was partially closed this evening as police investigated two teenagers who were hit by an SUV while trying to cross Sheridan Road at 51st Street.
"What witnesses told us is that the vehicle had been in the travel lane and had entered the turn lane and was going up to 51st Street to prepare for a turn," said Tulsa police officer Craig Heatherly.
Police say one boy was hit directly.
The other was hit by the side of the SUV.
Their friend, 15-year-old O'Savion Gludeau saw it all happen.
"When I was in the parking lot [right there], they was fixing to cross the street and I was like 'no bro, don't do it' and the car was like screech and hit them both. And Jayden flew and Elijah was just curled up in a ball," said Gludeau.
Police told FOX23 the SUV was traveling between 10 and 15 miles per hour.
Investigators said one of the boys has a femur fracture, which they say is a serious injury, but is not life-threatening.
The other teen has minor injuries.
That’s good news for O'Savion but he's still shaken up about what he saw.
"It was just not good to see my best friend get hit by a car," Gludeau said.
Police are thankful this didn't end in tragedy. And said this should not happen again.
"This intersection has kind of caught our attention recently," Heatherly said.
Police told FOX23 there have been multiple car accidents in this area. Then, when you add children to the mix, "it just creates an environment for tragedy to strike," Heatherly explained.
Business owners near this intersection told us they see children crossing this street unsupervised all the time.
Police said they're aware.
The driver was ticketed for driving with a suspended license but there wasn't anything else they could charge him with because the teens weren't crossing the street in a designated crosswalk area.
