LOVELAND, Ohio -- A vehicle hit two middle school students Friday, according to school officials, leaving one with a broken leg and concussion.

The students, one seventh- and one eighth-grade girl, were hit off school property on the corner of South Lebanon and West Loveland after early dismissal, at about 12:45 p.m. according to an announcement from Loveland Superintendent Chad Hilliker.

Stacey Bowers, whose 13-year-old daughter was walking home with the injured girls when the vehicle barreled through their crosswalk, said one of the victims had been coming over to her house for a sleepover.

"They wanted to walk home, so we said it was okay, and then this happened," she said. "I think it’s very dangerous; the cars fly up and down the street."

One of the girls’ legs was broken in two places, according to Bowers, and the impact left her with a concussion. The other had minor injuries.

The parents of both girls have already been notified, according to school officials. The victims are being treated a hospital.

Police were investigating the incident. Hilliker said the driver stopped and spoke with police.
