SPRING HILL — Two children were seriously injured Wednesday night when they were hit by a car as they walked alongside the road, officials said.
The Spring Hill residents, identified as 12-year-old Jason A. Colon and 15-year-old Caitlin Denton, were walking on Coronado Drive with the flow of traffic when they were hit by the front of a 2006 Honda driven by Daniel J. Sirico, 23, of Jacksonville.
Sirico did not see the young people on the road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The 7 p.m. accident was not alcohol-related, the agency said.
Colon was listed in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. Denton was in serious condition at Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville. No other details about the crash were released late Wednesday night.
