Teen boys hit by van in Costa Mesa

Two teenage boys were hospitalized late Friday, one with bleeding in his brain, after being hit by a minivan as they crossed 19th Street in Costa Mesa, police said Saturday.

At about 9:30 p.m. two 15-year-old boys "hurriedly" walked across 19th Street in the 700 block and were hit by the eastbound van, police said. The teenagers suffered concussions, cuts and bruises and one of them had bleeding in his brain and is listed in stable condition, officials said. Both were treated at Western Medical Center in Santa Ana.

The driver of the van, a 57-year-old Costa Mesa man, did not appear to be impaired and was released at the scene by police. Any witnesses to the crash are asked to call traffic investigator Rick Cummings at (714) 754-5264.
