TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Police say four teenagers were hit by a car Monday at a bus stop.

According to a news release, that impact caused the pickup truck to slam into a van going in the same direction, and the van swerved onto the sidewalk near the HART bus stop.

The teens who were hit attend Seminole Charter School. They're 18 and 19 years old.
