Two teens have serious injuries after they were struck by a pickup in Bridgeport on Wednesday night, police said

The Bridgeport Emergency Communications Center received several 911 calls at 5:47 p.m. reporting a crash with injuries on Kossuth Street near Berkshire Avenue.

The preliminary reports indicated that a pickup hit two children on a scooter and fled the scene, police said.

On Thursday, police said one of the people on the scooter is 17 and the other is 18.
