Meridian Police and Ada County paramedics are investigating an accident near Ten Mile Road and Cherry Lanes in Meridian involving a vehicle and two juvenile girls.
“The two girls were walking in a crosswalk about 7 a.m to catch a bus at the Compass Charter School to go to the Compass Charter High School, when they were (apparently) struck by a female driver,” said Meridian Police Deputy Chief Tracy Basterrechea. “The driver looked down when she spilled coffee and allegedly hit the girls.”
The 45-year-old driver has been cited for inattentive driving.
The victims' ages have not yet been released.
Basterrechea said the girls were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Traffic is now back moving in both directions on Cherry Lane.
