2 pedestrians hit by vehicle on North Belair Road

Two teenagers were struck by a car on North Belair Road when they darted into traffic Friday night.

About 7:45 p.m., the teens ran into the path of a black Cadillac traveling southbound on North Belair Road, said Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputy Ted Powers.

Both pedestrians were taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital. One had non-life-threatening injuries and the second, who was unconscious when deputies responded, was alert when taken by ambulance, Powers said.

The driver will not be charged, Powers said.

The teenagers, who were not identified, were trying to cross the road from Brusters to the Evans Cinema.
