MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Milwaukee police say two 16-year-old girls were struck by a pickup truck as they were crossing Bluemound Road at N. 62nd Street on Tuesday afternoon, February 17th. It happened around 3:15 p.m.

Police say the girls were crossing the street north to south when they were struck by an eastbound pickup truck. The girls were taken to the hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.

The pickup truck's driver, a 29-year-old Milwaukee man remained at the scene and is cooperating with this investigation.

"I noticed blood in the street and spray painted markings of bodies the way people were laid out and one of the hats and gloves appeared to be really small. It`s just really sad to see that," Jenny Gast said.

Bluemound Road was closed between 61st Street and 63rd Street -- but that stretch of roadway has since reopened.
