No matter how old you are, the rule remains the same, look both ways before you cross the street.
A 10 year old and an 11 year old girl failed to do so on Monday evening when leaving the carnival grounds in Thurmont and were both struck by a pickup truck. Thurmont Police Chief Greg Eyler said they had to be flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore. "With the parking on the street, and vehicular traffic, you got to be very careful. You find a lot of people crossing the street in between parked cars and the drivers don't see them in time," said Eyler.
The girls sustained bruises and one received a concussion. "They were both released from the hospital on Tuesday and are doing fine," continued Eyler.
No charges will be filed against the driver of the pickup truck.
