3 Morristown East students hit by truck

Sept. 1, 2017: Crews transported three Morristown East High School runners to the hospital after a truck hit them.

Three members of the Morristown East High School cross country team were taken to the hospital after being hit by a truck Friday afternoon.

A spokesperson for the Morristown Police Department said the teens were running westbound on Cumberland Street at Third Street around 4:15 p.m., and were waived across the road by two vehicles that were in the northbound lanes. A third vehicle, a Ford F-150, was in the turn lane, and did not see the runners crossing the street.

The spokesperson said the teens' injuries were believed to be non-life threatening. 

No information was immediately available about the driver, or if charges are pending.
