FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Two teenagers have been taken to the hospital after being hit by a vehicle in Florence, according to Lt. Bob Drulis with the Florence Police Department.

Drulis said a 15 and 16-year-old were walking on the proper side of the road a pedestrian should be using when the driver crossed the center line, hitting the teens.

Police believe the vehicle crossed the center line due to a medical incident with the driver.
