Police said the girl and boy, one 15-years old and the other 16, are in serious and critical condition.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said, “We had four young kids crossing the street, and whether it was a medical issue or he just lost control of his vehicle, he went up on the island, hit the pole and unfortunately hit two young kids.”

One was taken to Children’s Hospital and the other was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

It is not clear what caused the crash. No charges have been filed as of Tuesday night.

“I don’t really look which way because I assume tey’ll stop for me. Now this makes me think I might have to actually pay attention to what I’m doing when I cross,” one Madison Park student said.
