TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — Two teenagers were taken to the hospital after they were hit by a car in Taylorsville while trick-or-treating Saturday night.

One victim is in extremely critical condition while the other is in critical condition, according to police. Officials say the teenagers were around 13 to 14 years old.

Officers were dispatched around 7:01 p.m. on a report that a group of teenagers were hit by a sedan in the area of 2700 W. 6375 S.

Four teenagers were crossing the street using a crosswalk in the area when the crash happened. Two of the teenagers were hit by the vehicle and were taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries. The two other teenagers were not hit by the vehicle and were not injured.

An adult male and female as well as an infant were in the sedan and the driver is cooperating with police. It's too early in the investigation to say if speed or impairment were factors in the crash.
