Two teenagers were injured when they were hit by a vehicle Friday morning in the western valley.

Metro Lt. Peter Kisfalvi said both pedestrians appeared to be about 14 or 15 years old. One had minor injuries. The other was taken to University Medical Center with nonlife-threatening injuries.

The driver who hit the teenagers remained at the scene after the crash.

Westbound Tropicana was closed at Durango while police investigated but has reopened, according to the Regional Transportation Commission.
