Two teens who ran away from group homes in Coventry on Friday morning were hurt in an apparent hit-and-run at a farm owned by the University of Connecticut.

Hunter Guerin and Camryn Dwyer, both 15, were reported missing early Friday morning after running away from two separate group homes in Coventry, Connecticut, according to the police department.

Silver Alerts for both teens were issued at 3:30 a.m.

Almost eight hours later, around 11:15 a.m., UConn police received a report that a teenage boy and girl were hurt in hit-and-run crash, according to UConn officials.

The teens were found off Route 32 on property belonging to Spring Manor Farm, which grows food served on the UConn campus in Storrs. University officials said the farm is university property.

One teen was able to jump out of the way and suffered minor injuries, while the other suffered more significant injuries, according to a UConn spokesman. The teens have no known connection to the university.

Officials at Hartford Hospital, where the teens were taken for treatment, said Dwyer has been released and Guerin is listed in good condition.

The Silver Alerts were canceled around 2 p.m. Coventry police confirmed the two teens were involved in some sort of accident at UConn this morning.

UConn officials said descriptions of the vehicle purported to have struck the teens were "inconsistent."

Police from UConn, Coventry are investigating, along with Connecticut State Police.
