The Cobb County Police Department S.T.E.P. Unit is investigating how the two were hit by a car at the Shallowford Road and Johnson Ferry Road intersection about 5:40 Monday afternoon.
According to Officer Mike Bowman with Cobb Police, 17-year-old Austin Leake of Decatur and 18-year-old Darion Elizabeth Hugh-Sam of Marietta were trying to cross Shallowford Road against a red crosswalk signal when a white 2000 Honda Accord driven by 82-year-old Evelyn Tauchert, who had a green light, hit Leake and Hugh-Sam in the intersection.
Hugh-Sam and Leake were both taken by ambulance to Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Hugh-Sam in critical condition and Leake with non-life threatening injuries. Bowman did not know the teenagers' conditions Tuesday morning.
Tauchert was not injured in the crash and refused medical treatment.
The investigation is ongoing, and Bowman declined to say exactly what charges the teens could be facing.
