A moped was hit by a truck at approximately 9:00 pm on Thursday night. The crash occurred on east 8th street in Boston. That is when the moped attempted to make a turn from a side street onto 8th street. The pickup truck collided with the moped shortly after it made the turn. The force of the collision threw the moped riders, identified only as two teenage girls, into the air several feet before the landed on the ground. The moped was crushed in the collision.
The two moped riders are in a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The pickup driver remained on scene to speak with police. No charges have been issued at this time and police continue to investigate.
